Aaron Judge has been one of the best stories of the season so far. He’s a rookie with barely any time under his belt. He smacked 14 homers in his first 33 games and has put up a line of .316/.420/.744 while leading the Yankees to the top of the AL East.
That’s really something, but it still may not be enough to make Judge a household name. Or at least a household face. Even in New York, among Yankees fans, who should probably know better.
Some Yankees fans anyway. Like the ones who found themselves on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” last night, face to face with Judge himself. Whether they knew it or not.
