Aaron Judge breaks through the Dodger Stadium fence after a crazy running catch
Aaron Judge is undoubtedly one of the best hitters on the planet, but that’s what he does.
The man seems to be a pretty good right fielder as well, and he reminded us Saturday night in his home state of California.
JD Martinez was the tying run for the Los Angeles Dodgers, and he sent a fly ball to the right side, and the judge had to make a lot of effort for it.

The judge extended to grab the wall, and he literally ran through the wall for his team.
The 6’7″, 282-pound behemoth of a man literally broke the bullpen door open.
“They need to make a stronger fence out there, I guess,” Judge told FOX’s Ken Rosenthal after the game on the broadcast.
Trainers came to see the Judge, but he was fine.
So no, Judge isn’t just a home run hitter – he does it all.
Speaking of home runs, he hit his AL-leading 19th of the season earlier in the day and is behind Pete Alonso for the MLB lead despite missing 11 games on the injured list.
WHITE SOX WIN AT OVER WITH UNEXPECTED HELP FROM UMPIRE
Judge was five points away from winning the Triple Crown last year, as he set a new American League record with 62 home runs, breaking New York Yankee Roger Federer’s 61. Maris who hit it in 1961.
Last season, Judge led the majors in homers, RBI (131), on-base percentage (.425), slugging percentage (.666), total bases (391), and runs scored (133). His 111 walks led the AL, and he earned MVP honors.
That season came in a walk year, and he turned into a nine-year, $360 million contract and being named the first captain of the Yankees since Derek Jeter.
His numbers at this point in the season look pretty similar to what they were at this point last year (he leads the majors with a 1.065 OPS), so it’s definitely not he out of the question whether he will protect him. Especially if his defense is still this good.
