The New York Yankees have one of the best players in the game, Aaron Judge, who has been leading them since the last season. By now, almost every baseball fan knows the greatness of the NY side’s captain. However, there is a lot more to see from the man, as the team looks really good this year. Can Judge lead the Bronx Bombers to their 28th World Series victory this year? The fans have seen some progress for sure after a terrible 2023 season. Moreover, the captain missed two months of game time due to a torn ligament near his toe.

The Yankees Faithful would be praying that something like that would not happen again. Moreover, as much as the fans want Aaron Judge to stay healthy, his team needs him more than that. After all, it is not only about his unbelievable hitting prowess, but his presence as a leader is a great boost for his teammates. Over the years, a lot of people have talked about the 2022 American League MVP and how he is a great guy off the field as well. Lately, Spencer Jones, the Top Prospect of the Yankees, talked about how Judge treats the junior players of the team.
