The New York Yankees played at Target Field on Wednesday afternoon, against the Minnesota Twins.
The game ended with a 12-6 Yankees victory and included an excellent performance by reigning AL MVP Aaron Judge.
It’s well known that Judge and the Yankees have fans everywhere.
Some even remembered that Judge is actually turning 31 on Wednesday.
One fan in particular took a cool sign to the stadium to wish Judge a happy birthday.

“I skipped school to say happy birthday”, the sign read.
It’s cool to know that Judge has fans all around the country, fans that recognize his talent and hard work.
He rewarded the love with a fine performance at the dish to help the struggling Yanks put an end to a three-game losing streak.
Judge went 3-for-4 with a walk, a double, and three RBI.
He was also caught stealing and had an injury scare, but he showed throughout the game that he was fine.
The big game at the plate took Judge’s numbers to a .267/.358/.522 line with five doubles, six homers, and an .880 OPS.
It’s not the 1.111 OPS he had last year, but he is slowly coming around.
The Yankees record is now 14-11, but they are still fourth in the AL East behind the Tampa Bay Rays, the Baltimore Orioles, and the Toronto Blue Jays.
There is a lot of work to be done, especially on offense, but Wednesday was certainly positive.
Judge had a great day, and fans showed their support even in Minnesota.
His birthday is off to a good start.NEXT: Aaron Judge Received A Nice Birthday Present
