There’s a new king of New York. And his name is Aaron Judge.

The Yankees’ slugger cemented himself in the annals of baseball history on Tuesday night, launching homer No. 62 in the second leg of the Bronx Bombers’ doubleheader with the Rangers. Judge took Texas’ right-hander Jesus Tinoco deep in the first inning of Game No. 161.

Who gave up Aaron Judge’s 62nd home run?

The hurler on the mound was 27-year old righty Jesus Tinoco. Tinoco threw an inside slider that caught too much of the plate. “All Rise” made him pay, sending a rocket into the left field bleachers.

According to ESPN’s Stat and Info team, Tuesday was the 17th time Judge went yard on a slider this season. It might be time to take that out the ole pitching arsenal when facing No. 99.

Who caught Aaron Judge’s 62nd home run?

According to USA Today’s Bob Nightengale, Judge’s record-setting dinger landed in Section 31, Row 1, Seat 3. It fell right into the grasp of Dallas native Cory Youmans, who was summarily swept away by stadium security to have the ball authenticated.

A tale of two fans. One’s going home at least $2M richer, and one gets escorted out of the game for jumping the fence.

Corey Youmans just caught the ball of a lifetime 🤑

Youmans, married to Emmy-winning reporter (and former The Bachelor contestant) Bri Amaranthus, certainly will have an idea of his — and his new souvenir’s — worth. He is the Vice President of at Fisher Investments, a firm that manages nearly $200 billion in assets, per ESPN’s Darren Rovell.

That also means Youmans knows how to make a deal. It will be no small feat — or check — for Judge to retrieve that ball.

How much Aaron Judge’s 62nd home run ball worth?

Per Nightengale, Judge’s historic home run should net Youmans at least $2 million in returns. Whatever those Rangers tickets cost him were totally worth it.

I wonder if he’ll go on vacation. Maybe rent a yacht? Who knows?

Although we don’t know his name, the fan is OK, according to Dallas Morning News’ Evan P. Grant. He was, however, kicked out for his fence-hopping antics.

Guy did not incur injuries, but was escorted out of park for trying to jump fence.
