Spring Training March 3 – BP

Aaron Judge was an impressive Yankees prospect on the Scottsdale Scorpions roster in the Arizona Fall League along with the Phillies Roman Quinn, and it’s telling that Judge was taking batting practice prior to today’s Spring Training opener at Bright House but Quinn was nowhere to be found.  Good to chat briefly with Judge after his BP, and I forgot to remind him not to kill the Phillies with his bat today.  Despite carrying a 5-1 lead into the top of the 9th inning today, Mario Hollands had much better command of his socks than he did of the ball that he grooved to Mr. Judge for a game tying three run homer over into the left-field bullpen.  If it had to be anyone running the home opener, I’m glad it was #99, Aaron Judge.

This pitch got by Judge — but the next one?  Bye bye …

As Judge was followed by #95 Greg Bird, another Scottsdale Scorpion alum and potential future star for the Yankees – who smacked a solid double off Hollands – we decided there would be no post-game Sweet Caroline today, and it was time to head back over the Causeway to home base at the Beach.
