It's hard enough to hit a home run at the major league level as it is, let alone when someone promises it will happen in a game against Clayton Kershaw.
As ESPN detailed, Judge approached Yankees bullpen catching coach Jason Brown's father, John, before the contest and said "I'll hit one for you tonight." He did just that in the third inning and gave the Bronx Bombers an early 2-1 lead with his blast off Kershaw.
"That's Aaron Judge, yeah, that's who he is," Jason Brown said, per ESPN.
Judge suggested the elder Brown should attend every game if Sunday was any indication after saying, "I've seen [John Brown] all over the place, and I missed seeing him when we played in Anaheim this year, so I went over there and just said hello to him and said I'd get one for him, and I was able to do that today."
It was a memorable moment in a potential World Series preview.
Don't be surprised when Judge invites John Brown to attend every game if they do meet in the Fall Classic.
