Aaron Judge’s 62nd home run: Fan who caught
Aaron Judge launched for his American League-record 62nd homer.
The historic souvenir came sailing into the front row of section 31 in left field, a drive Judge hit to lead off the second game of a day-night
. He ran an idea past his girlfriend — what if he headed to Texas to take in Judge’s chase in person?
Bennicaso caught a morning flight to Texas. Being self-employed in real estate investments helped, he said.
Instead, Judge pulled a home run that broke the AL record set by Roger Maris in 1961.
Empty-handed, Bennicaso planned to return home Wednesday morning.
