Any Yankees fan who sat down to watch the All-Star game on Tuesday night witnessed The Judge slam a homer off Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer. In the top of the second inning, Aaron Judge hit a home run, placing the American League ahead 1-0. This was the first hit a Yankee made in the All-Star game since Derek Jeter in 2014, and the first home run in the All-Star Game since Jason Giambi hit off Billy Wagner in 2002.
Rookie teammate Gleyber Torres captured video of Jugde’s home run from the dug out, posted on his twitter. While Torres may still need some practice with video posting, you can see Judge’s hit and hear the celebratory reactions of his teammates. You can view the video below.
