Aaron Judge is a Beast
Aaron Judge is a freak in the baseball world. The 25-year-old rookie is 6′ 7″, 282 lbs. That’s bigger than many football players in the NFL. The New York Yankee currently leads MLB with 21 home runs. He slammed two more runs against the Orioles, one of which traveled a record-breaking 496-feet. But to be honest, ESPN and the league only began tracking home runs in 2009.

Judge looks to be on pace to be a superstar in this league already. I expect a lot of Judge Dredd references as his career progresses.
