Fans in Toronto Fail to Catch Aaron Judge’s 61st Home Run
After a spectacular 61st home run by Aaron Judge, fans in Toronto failed to catch the ball. A fan – who claims to be Frankie Lasagna – spoke to the media and described his experience. During a TV appearance, he revealed how he came to be so close to catching Judge’s ball. He also revealed that the ball had the potential to become a valuable item. Luckily, the ball landed safely in the Blue Jays’ bullpen and was returned to the New York Yankees.
Aaron Judge’s 61st home run matches Roger Maris’ record
Aaron Judge’s 61st homer today matched Roger Maris’ record for most home runs in a season. The Yankees’ phenom has produced a lot of home runs this season and is in the running for the Triple Crown. However, there are many questions surrounding his future.
Maris’ record was last broken in 1998 by Mark McGwire, who hit 70 home runs for the St. Louis Cardinals. Since then, three players have broken the mark, including Judge. All three have been linked to performance-enhancing drugs. Judge is the first Yankee to match Maris’ record in his career.
Ball ricochets into Yankees’ bullpen
The Yankees have cooled off recently but Aaron Judge has been enjoying an incredible start to his contract year. The right fielder hit his 61st home run on Tuesday and has since tied Roger Maris’ record. He is on pace to break that record on Friday when the Yankees play the Baltimore Orioles at Yankee Stadium. Judge is confident in his hitting ability and is focused on staying healthy.
Judge’s 61st home run was so close that the man who runs a Toronto restaurant came very close to catching it. However, the ball bounced off the wall below the railing and into the bullpen. After the near-miss, Lasagna put his hands on his head and said he needed a fishing net.
Fan refuses to give ball back to a Cardinals fan
Aaron Judge’s 61st homerun failed to catch the fans in Toronto on Tuesday night, but he tied Roger Maris’ record. Judge, who slugged 61 home runs last season, was at the game when the ball hit the wall below the railing in right field. But after he missed, he reached first base, pumped his arm, and even exchanged a slap with his coach, Travis Chapman.
Judge’s 61st home run failed to catch the fans in Toronto, and a fan who was close to catching the ball, said as much on television. He had front-row seats, and he was close to the ball, but his attempt to grab it was too late. When the ball came down to him, he tossed his hands up and was unable to catch it. He then handed the ball to his mother. Apparently, Lasagna was not pleased with the outcome.
Blue Jays fan says he won’t sell ball
An avid Blue Jays fan says he won’ t sell Aaron Judge’s 61s home run because of its sentimental value. Aaron Judge hit his 61st home run against the Yankees on April 6, and the ball bounced off reliever Matt Buschmann and back to Judge. The ball made its way back to Judge, and he later gave it to his mother.
The ball had fallen off a Blue Jays fan’s glove during the game, but luckily the fan wasn’t the only person who missed it. Another Blue Jays fan, wearing a Bo Bichette jersey, came even closer to catching Judge’s drive, but it somehow escaped his grasp. The fan was a bit upset about missing the baseball, and declined to be interviewed.
