This is one of those moments that will send you into the ugly cry because of how instant, generous and pure it is. A Toronto Blue Jays fan caught a home run ball hit by Yankees star Aaron Judge, and immediately turned to give it to nine-year-old Derek Rodriguez behind him wearing a Judge jersey.  The boy is instantly in tears hugging him to say thank you!!!

That awesome guy is Mike Lanzilotta and he talked about that split second decision. He actually had struck up a conversation with Derek and his dad and established a pretty great rapport. Then he and his buddy were on a mission to get him a ball thrown up from the bull pen. They couldn’t have prediction how amazing it would turn out!


And Aaron Judge heard about that moment, and arranged to meet his little fan!
