Aaron Judge’s cheering section at Yankee Stadium is as remarkable as he is
Aaron Judge already is a larger-than-life presence in the Yankees’ batting order in his rookie season, and now he has the fan section to prove it.
Judge, who is 6-foot-7 and 280 pounds, was greeted by a group of fans dressed as judges – complete with those creepy white wigs – during Thursday’s game against the Astros at Yankee Stadium.
According to the New York Daily News, the fans are childhood friends – one even is a Red Sox fan – who came up with the idea in a group text.
“I was watching a game and was like, ‘You know what. Aaron Judge. I don’t see any judges in the stadium. Let’s do it.’ Rally the troops, and they made it happen,” Nick Greenwood, one of Judge’s judges, told the newspaper.
Alas, Judge went 0-for-3 with a strikeout in Thursday’s 3-2 loss to the Astros, but he still leads the AL in homers (13), runs (28) and OPS (1.146).
