Judge was mentioned by a reporter about Jacob, a child who was upset that Judge might not be able to play for the Yankees after this season.
The awkward question put the slugger on spot.
Judge: “Jacob! We got a lot great Yankees on our team. There are many great Yankees who will continue to be here for a long period of time. Don’t worry, don’t get upset. Hopefully, you’ll remain a Judge fan for the rest of your life. “
The deal pays $19,000,000 to the 30-year-old, with just one year remaining. He will then be a free agent.
He spent his entire career with Yankees and became one of the most famous players in baseball.
He quickly became a fan favorite, as he scored 52 home-runs in his first season and had 114 RBI’s.
He was awarded Rookie Of The Year and made it to the All-Star Game.
The Yankees are on fire this season heading into the All Star break.
They are currently in first place in American League East Division with a record of 64-28 in the 92 games they have played so far in this season.
