In fact, he was the leading vote-getter in the All-Star Game phase 1 of fan voting, earning him a place in the American League outfield and starting lineup.
It’s hard not to root for the guy: he plays with passion, he loves the Yankees, and watching him hit a baseball is a show on its own.
He routinely posts some of the highest exit velocities in the game, and this season, he has been as clutch as ever, with game-winning blasts included.
That’s why he has fans everywhere.

The Judge Delivered His Verdict On Wednesday: It Was A Grand Slam
The Yankees official Twitter account posted an incredible video in which a Pittsburgh Pirates fan at PNC Park is recording an at-bat from Judge.
He is saying he loves the Pirates, but Judge is his favorite player… just as the Yanks star hits a grand slam.
It happened on Wednesday night, as he was a main reason behind the Yankees’ 16-0 win against the Pirates.
In the video, you could also see several people wearing Judge’s number 99 and cheering after the long home run.
He is truly a man of the people.
He has expressed a desire to remain with the Yankees for a long time, and owner Hal Steinbrenner recently said they want to make it happen.
Despite the two sides being unable to reach an agreement before the season, New York is still expected to be his long-term home.
Judge, who is slashing .287/.366/.627 with 30 home runs, is certainly making himself more money with each passing day.
