Aaron Judge makes a young fan's life with between-innings game of catch

Yahoo Sports

Yankees right fielder and reigning American League Rookie of the Year Aaron Judge is a man of the people – this we already knew.

In May 2017, he gave pair of young fans a ball, and they lost their minds. In July, he played a game of short toss with a fan in the outfield stands. Then, in Spring Training this season, he signed a young man’s jersey, and the ensuing reaction was priceless, and made another fan’s life by wishing him a happy birthday.

Monday, he continued his virtuous streak with a game of long-ish toss in the outfield with a young fan sporting a 2017 Judge All-Star Game jersey, who also has an impressive arm.


Here’s another angle:


The interaction occurred between innings in the Yankees’ 4-2 win over the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park, and Judge appeared to play right up until the leadoff batter came up.

As if you needed another reason to love Aaron Judge, you can rest easy knowing that he probably made this kid’s life.
