New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge is spending his offseason doing good.
Check out some pics from the event below:
The four-hour camp at Judge’s alma mater, Linden High School in California, provided young players between 9 and 14 years of age exposure to the fundamentals of good baseball as taught by Judge and a staff of volunteer coaches from area prep and college baseball programs, including University of the Pacific softball coaches and players.
And it was free to all the participants.
Judge made a point of going around the large field to visit with just about every player as they learned the best way to swing a bat, pick up a grounder or shag a fly ball.
Before darting off to his next activity, a young Little Leaguer named Israel said, “This has been very fun. I really appreciate the lessons and that only a few kids got selected.”
Just before Israel answered a reporter’s question, he got the opportunity to ask Judge a question:
Sunday’s clinic was the inaugural event for Judge’s new All Rise Foundation. Great to see Judge keeping busy, and we don’t mean with the ladies.
