It was an unforgettable game for a young Yankees fan Tuesday night as a heartwarming moment was caught on camera.
In the sixth inning, Aaron Judge hit a home run into the left field seats. A Toronto Blue Jays fan, Mike Lanzillotta, grabs the ball and promptly turns around and gives it to a young boy behind him.
That young Yankees fan, 9-year-old, Derek Rodriguez, was wearing a brand new T-shirt of his favorite player - you guessed it - Aaron Judge.
Rodriguez broke into tears of happiness thanking Lanzillotta for the gift.
The Yankees went on to win the game 9-1 for their 11th straight victory.
