New York Yankees All-Star slugger Aaron Judge is such a powerful hitter that people are wondering if he cheated during Monday’s road game against the Toronto Blue Jays.
In the top of the eighth inning against the Blue Jays, the reigning AL MVP hit a home run of Blue Jays reliever Jay Jackson. Before Judge hit a home run, Blue Jays Sportsnet announcers Dan Shulman and Buck Martinez noted a suspicious glance from the All-Star slugger.
As you can see in the clip below, Judge was seen quickly glancing at the team dugout. Shulman and Martinez found this peculiar, though they noted that he wouldn’t have been able to catch the signals from Toronto catcher.
You definitely don’t see a batter glance at the dugout that often. They need to be laser-focused at the plate as they anticipate the pitch, after all. So it’s definitely noteworthy that Judge did this before hitting the home run.
At any rate, Judge’s home run wasn’t exactly a deciding factor in the game. His solo shot into center put the Yankees up 7-0, and they cruised to a 7-4 victory in the first of a four-game series against the AL East rivals.
The 31-year-old Judge hit 62 home runs a year ago, the most ever for an American League player in a single season. Through his first 33 games of the season, Judge is batting .274 with 10 homers and 24 RBI.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
