New York Yankees rookie outfielder Aaron Judge has had a pretty phenomenal last few months—in March he was announced as the right fielder for Opening Day, in April he was named the American League’s Rookie of the Month, and in May the 25-year-old became the the youngest player to hit 13 home runs within the first 26 games of a season. Oh, and he’s currently on the cover of Sports Illustrated.
So, you’d think that any hardcore Yankees fan would be able to recognize the rising baseball star in a crowd, or at the very least if he were sitting right next to him.
Well, according to a funny, new segment from The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, that’s not the case.
In the segment, a disguised Judge (disguised is probably a strong word, considering he was only wearing a pair of glasses) sat down with fans at an NBC Sports desk at Bryant Prak in New York City. Mock interview style, Judge asks the fans about their favorite player on the team and many of them respond, “Aaron Judge.” But it’s not until Judge holds a picture of his official Yankees portrait up next to his face—and takes off the glasses—that the fans realize it’s the man himself.
The reactions? Priceless.
Check out the hilarious clip, and watch the fans react once they finally realize it’s the real Aaron Judge, in the video below:
