Toronto — A young New York Yankees fan, who was given a baseball game by a Toronto Blue Jays fan, met his hero, the Yankees star Aaron Judge, on Wednesday.
A memorable moment happened hours after the camera captured nine-year-old Dereck Rodriguez hugging and crying hugging Blue Jays fan Mike Langirotta. According to the Associated Press, the latter gave it after taking Rodriguez Judge’s six home runs.
A video shared by the Yankees on Twitter showed Rodriguez meeting the judge on Wednesday before the team concludes the two-game series with Toronto.

Both Rodriguez and Langirotta were invited to the Field and Yankees dougouts, according to the press.
The judge surprised both of them, signed a home run ball, and gave a young fan a payment for his batting gloves.
Named after Derek Jeter, who was inducted into the Hall of Fame, Rodriguez told AP that he took the ball to school on Wednesday.
The Yankees also added that Rodriguez and Langirotta have been invited to this season’s Yankees match, each with nine people, and the match can be seen from the correct field in the judge’s room.
