The Dallas man who caught Aaron Judge’s American League record 62nd home run Tuesday night said he hasn’t decided what to do with the historic memento.
Corey Youmans was sitting in the front row of Section 31 in left field at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, when he snared Judge’s hit on a walk.
Surrounded by security as he took the baseball for authentication, Youmans was asked about his plans for the potential seven-figure prize.
“Good question. I hadn’t thought about that,” said Youmans, who was part of a record crowd of 38,832 at the three-year-old stadium.
After the Yankees lost 3-2, an umpire confirmed that he did not have a baseball.
“I don’t know where it is,” said Judge, who broke former Yankees shortstop Roger Morris’ 1961 home run record.
“Let’s see what happens with this. It would be great to have it back, but it’s a souvenir for the fans. He made a great catch and they have every right to do so.”
