The New York Yankees came together for a simple message over social media: Bullying won’t work under our watch.
Outfielder Aaron Judge joined his teammates and manager Aaron Boone to send an anti-bullying message over Twitter. This is in response to Jenn Slater’s Facebook post about her 10-year-old daughter, Cassidy, and her issues with being bullied at her elementary school.
Hey Cassidy – we saw the video you made and from all of us here at the New York Yankees, we want you to know that you are not alone. We have your back! https://t.co/uuRb0ghzf1 pic.twitter.com/V2EeuJ1YmW

In the video, the Yankees players hold up a series of notecards, similar to the video posted by Cassidy.
“You are not alone! Count the New York Yankees as your friends!” Judge held up in the Yankees video.
Cassidy, a fourth-grader from the Scranton School District in Pennsylvania, lives near the home of the Yankees’ Triple-A affiliate, the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders.
On the field, the Yankees (8-8) host the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday at 6:35 p.m. ET.
