Aaron Judge joins Yankees teammates, manager in anti-bullying message

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.

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.
