MLB stars, like New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge, have the chance to sign life-changing endorsement contracts to increase their earnings.
Those who are good at what they do and popular among fans will get to enjoy these benefits.
Judge is, of course, one of them.
According to FOX Sports: MLB, he signed a huge deal with the Jordan brand.

Judge might not have Shohei Ohtani’s ability to pitch and hit, but when he is fully healthy, there isn’t a single hitter in the league who is better than him.
And he happens to play on a team with a very big market for merchandise and a lot of TV exposure, making him one of MLB’s most marketable stars.
Kids love Judge, and adults admire him because of his talent, determination, and leadership skills.
The 2023 season has been a bit rough injury-wise: he spent some time on the injured list with a hip issue and then tore ligaments in his right big toe.
The last injury has him limited physically, but he has managed to perform at a high level anyway.
In 67 games and 289 plate appearances, the reigning AL MVP is slashing a cool .281/.415/.615 with 22 home runs and a 1.030 OPS.
He has done all that with a myriad of nagging injuries and the weight of the Yankees’ offense on his shoulders.
The Jordan endorsement will be a win-win for the parties involved.NEXT: Yankees Make A Roster Move Ahead Of Friday's Game
