At first, it will likely be fans in Aaron Judge gear along with their families, with community organizations, charities and Little League teams the next groups getting the chance to sit in on the court's proceedings.
Judge is hitting.321 this season with 30 RBI. If he keeps it up, he could win the Triple Crown - and some people in the city may even be able to identify the 6-foot-8 slugger when presented with his face.
The team has sectioned off a small portion of seats at Yankee Stadium appropriately named "The Judge's Chambers". But anytime the Yankees stop taking themselves so seriously and have fun should be celebrated.
Judge already acknowledges the fans one section over from his new Chambers during roll call, and now, he has some extra love to send out to his mock jury as well. "I think it turned out great".
The newly formed section dubbed "The Judge's Chambers" is proof of that!
The fans in NY are so enamored with Aaron Judge that they have taken matters into their own hands when it comes to showing how much they are behind their rising star. Judge, 25, was the No. 32 pick in the 2013 MLB June Amateur Draft out of California State University Fresno.
To be fair, though, this wasn't something that was sprung on Judge, as he actually knew about it before the world at large found out Monday afternoon. "When you come to a game, it's supposed to be fun for the players and the fans".
"It's pretty cool", Judge said. (The Yankees) just brought it up to me, and said, 'This is what we're going to do.
It's just another part of the wave that is Judge-a-mania, which of course has only magnified as the rookie has gotten out to a hot start that, as of Tuesday, sees him leading the AL with 15 home runs and ranking in the Top 5 in several other categories. "I think it's a good addition". But I've still got a job to do on the field. I might go up there early when I get to the field tomorrow before BP and check it out.
