Aaron Judge would love to make some room on his mantle for his 62nd home run ball … but there’s just one issue — the fan who caught it ain’t sure if he’s willing to part ways with it yet.
The Yankees star hit the historic blast in the first inning of NY’s loss to the Rangers on Tuesday — giving him sole possession of the American League record over Roger Maris — and Cory Youmans was the lucky spectator who ended up on the receiving end of it.
The guy — who reportedly works in finance in Dallas — boxed out other fans and snagged it with his glove … and then he was whisked away by Rangers security guards in order to have it all authenticated.
In his only public comments after making the grab — Youmans told a gaggle of media members at the stadium he hadn’t thought about what he was going to do with it.
“That’s a good question!” he said.
Youmans has a few options — namely, he can sell it for a fortune … as experts like David Kohler from SCP Auctions say it’s worth up to $2 MILLION right now!
Following the game, Judge said he would like to get the ball back if Youmans wanted to give it up … but he told reporters that hadn’t happened yet.
The 30-year-old, though, said there’d be no hard feelings if Youmans didn’t return it.
“It’d be great to get it back, but that’s a souvenir for a fan,” Judge said. “So, they made a great catch out there and they’ve got every right to it.”
