Aaron Judge was not listening to the words of this trash talking Orioles fan as he blasted his MLB-leading 37th homer on the year.
The Yankees played in Baltimore Sunday as they wrapped up their second series following the All-Star break. New York walked out of Camden Yards with a 6-0 victory to land a series win over a division rival.
The Bronx Bombers again flexed their muscles in win, and none did it better than the Yankees’ giant star in the outfield. Aaron Judge helped get New York out to an early lead, blasting a two-run homer to give his team a 3-0 advantage.
He did so despite a trash talking Orioles fan shouting from the stands.
Check it out.

You can hear a Baltimore supporter yelling his belief that Judge was going to strike out in his second inning at-bat. One pitch later, the righty absolutely demolished a baseball, sending it to the left field bleachers.
The blast traveled 456 feet, and it was a no-doubter off the bat. It certainly shut the fan up in a game that was dominated by New York from start to finish.
Aaron Judge may have 37 homers but his future in New York is up in the air
Fan are hoping the team will pay their superstar after the performance he’s put on this season. Judge is set to enter free agency after the 2022 campaign unless the Yankees make a move.
He was asked about his future while making his All-Star Game appearance last weekend, and things got a little awkward after the outfielder gave a very non-committal response.
At the moment, Aaron Judge leads baseball in homers, RBIs, total bases, and runs scored. If the Yankees don’t pay him, someone else will.
