Yankees Aaron Judge Gives Fan a Lifetime Memory

Aaron Judge has taken the 2017 baseball world by storm.

Coming into play on Friday, the New York Yankees rookie leads the American League with 30 home runs, is hitting .312 and has driven in 62 runs.

Last week, he was the winner of MLB’s Home Run Derby and as of today, he’s on pace to shatter Mark McGwire’s single-season rookie record of 49 home runs set back in 1987.

On Thursday night, the man who wears number 99 gave a young fan a memory that he’ll cherish and treasure forever.

WATCH:

All class. All humility. The Yankee Way. ??

It seems like a simple gesture, but taking the time out in the middle of a game to play catch with fan between innings is an awesome example of connecting with the fans.

Well done Aaron Judge.
