Aaron Judge, New York Yankees captain and MLB superstar, is a fan-favorite athlete not just in the Bronx but in the whole country. His demeanor off the field is deeply adored by the fans. This season, Judge has had a tough time on the field. He got injured mid-season and returned a month later just to see his team crash out of the playoff race.
Nonetheless, Aaron Judge, who still has eight years left on the contract, is motivated to make a difference in 2024. Besides making an impact on the field, the Yankees captain has taken a stride to give it back to society. He is all set to use his influence as a global star to change the lives of precious children.
Aaron Judge Will Grant Wishes Of Multiple Children At Make-A-Wish Even In New York!
Aaron Judge is renowned for his powerful presence on the baseball diamond. But his impact reaches far beyond the ballpark. His dedication to charitable causes and community involvement has solidified his status as a role model and leader, both within the Yankees organization and the broader sports community. Meanwhile, this time, Judge is set to change the lives of multiple children through an event organized by the Make-A-Wish foundation. The non-profit organization, which grants the wishes of children battling serious illnesses, has tied up with Fanatics to host a grand event this week.
During the event, global sports icons Aaron Judge, Tom Brady, and Jayson Tatum, amongst others, will interact with several children. Judge, in particular, will grant the wishes of two kids and will surprise seven others. Not only that, the Yankees captain will also sign autographs and merchandise for the little ones. It isn’t the first time that the slugger has committed to making children’s lives better. In 2018, the captain called up a nine-year-old sick boy to the Yankee stadium to spend an entire day. The kid watched the game sitting beside Brian Cashman in the exclusive club. Certainly, the Yankee icon understands how to put his superstar status to good use. After all, it’s Judge’s heartwarming and selfless gestures that set him apart from the masses.
Judge Receives Mega Honor From His Alma Mater!
This off-season, Aaron Judge is receiving all the love from all over the country. He recently received a huge honor from his alma mater, Fresno State University. To those unversed, the Yankee captain began his professional baseball journey with the Fresno State Bulldogs baseball team. He rejected MLB’s draft in 2010 to sharpen up his skills by playing college baseball. Unsurprisingly, Judge remained a star and won multiple tournaments before eventually joining the Yankees.
Now, a decade later, Fresno State is all set to honor their alumni Aaron Judge by retiring the latter’s jersey number, 29. Judge, invited to the ceremony, couldn’t control his excitement. He said that the honor is incredible and humbling at the same time. Moreover, the slugger is looking forward to visiting his alma mater after a decade and reliving those college days memories.
