A Toronto Blue Jays fan watching the game from the second deck of Rogers Centre caught a home run ball hit by New York Yankees’ right fielder Aaron Judge Tuesday night in the sixth inning.
The man pumped his fists in the air in celebration then quickly handed the ball off to a young fan in a Yankees cap and Judge shirt.
The boy, overcome with emotion, threw his arms around the stranger and cried.
