A legend was born on Thursday when several Aaron Judge fans gathered in the right field bleachers of Yankee Stadium, all wearing judge wigs and black robes, some wielding gavels.

It was all for their hero, who has 13 home runs and 28 RBI in 29 games, with a .317 batting average. But Judge is not a fan favorite only because of his hitting. He’s a very good outfielder, and he goes out of his way to interact with fans — handing over baseballs to kids and generally being a top-notch dude.
