Fan who caught Aaron Judge’s home run No 62 ball ‘has already received offers of $2MILLION’

Fan who caught Aaron Judge’s home run No 62 ball ‘has already received offers of $2MILLION’… but he reveals he doesn’t yet know what he will do with the piece of MLB history

Aaron Judge finally broke the single-season AL home run record Tuesday night, and the fan who caught the piece of history will likely be in for a massive payday.

The fan who caught the home run ball, which was hit in the first inning in Texas vs. the Rangers, was seen being escorted away from his seat by security and has already received offers of $2 million, according to Front Office Sports.

The lucky attendee has been identified as a man named Corey Youmans.

Youmans was asked was asked what he was going to do with the ball after he secured the valuable artifact.

‘That’s a good question, I haven’t thought about it,’ he said. 

Judge tied the 61-year record last week vs. the Blue Jays, before Yankees fans who wanted to see him break the record at home vs. the Orioles were left disappointed. 

Aaron Judge broke the single-season AL home run record on Tuesday with his 62nd of 2022

Based on previous estimates by one expert, Youmans would be wise to hold out for more than $2 million. 

‘Perhaps some collectors believe that Bonds, McGwire and Sosa are the real home run champions. But we discredit that notion for obvious reasons,’ Chris Brigandi, owner of Brigandi Coins & Collectibles, told the Action Network.

‘With that said, we can expect Judge’s 60th to be valued at $500,000-plus, 61st at $2 million-plus, 62 and record-setting at $5 to $10 million.’
