A young Yankees fan came away entirely heartbroken after being robbed of a wholesome moment with Aaron Judge in Tuesday’s 7-6 win against the Orioles.
At the bottom of the eighth inning, Judge went to give a young fan a foul ball, but an older fan wanted his time to shine, so he reached in and stole it.
Judge appeared to place the ball in the youngster’s glove when a separate fan reached in and grabbed the ball.
The camera panned to the young fan, who was seen shaking his head after he went back to his seat.
“That’s grand theft!” Paul O’Neill said on the call for YES Network. “Look at that. Little guy tried to get it in his glove.”
Let’s hope the Yankees find a way to connect with the young fan and make things right.
