The New York Yankees welcome you to another edition of the Aaron Judge Show in his home state and with an almost-impossible feat.
With what we’ve seen so far this season with Aaron Judge, nothing is impossible for the New York Yankees superstar. He steals bases, he slugs home runs and he makes diving plays that would make Gold Glove-winner Brett Gardner proud.
Now batting practice has become a spectacle, a reason for fans to show up early to that evening’s contest. Why? Because Aaron Judge takes baseballs for a ride and hits them where no man has hit them before.
Take yesterday, for example. In his home state, Judge explored the ballparks he grew up watching games in. Except this time, he got to mash home runs during batting practice.
This time, however, his enjoyable home run show almost turned dark as a fan chasing after Judge’s home run ball almost got knocked out by the next home run.
Come on, man. You should know better. When the Judge is at the plate, the entire world pays attention.
And watching the video over and over again, the man in the yellow shirt runs over to get the previously-crushed ball, only to abruptly slow to a walk right as the next home run lands in the EXACT spot he would’ve been had he kept running.
No, he didn’t see it coming. But he still slowed down. Was he tired? Was he fully aware that the ball was going to another owner? Or was it simply a miracle?
Who knows but regardless of the reason why, Judge still absolutely mashed that home run ball and almost killed a man.
All in a day’s work for the New York Yankees’ gentle giant.
