The New York Yankees are full of tricks this season. The first trick they pulled this season was competing early in the American League East and at one point sat on top of all of baseball. The second trick occurred Saturday against the Oakland Athletics.
Starlin Castro was running with his head back to the ball to catch a pop up. However, he missed it and bopped the ball upward. Luckily, right fielder Aaron Judge was there to secure the ball and finish the play.
“Yeah, football, that kind of reminded me of that a little bit,” Judge told reporters after the Yankees’ 3-2 victory. “I was just glad I was able to be there and make the plays.”
