The Yankees’ Aaron Judge took the city, and MLB, by storm this season.
At 25 years of age, Judge broke the all-time rookie home run record with 52 bombs and hit .284 with 114 RBIs while helping the Bronx Bombers get within one win of the World Series. In a season in which the Yankees weren’t expected to do much, Judge captured the attention of MLB fans across the country by bashing home run after home run. Now he’s added another accolade to his resume- video game star.

This evening we learned that Judge would be cover athlete for the video game “MLB The Show 2018,” which is slated for release on March 27th.
MLB The Show 18 will release on March 27 with Aaron Judge on the cover. Deluxe edition of the game releases 3 days before standard version.
Our own Rob Parker said it best back in July when he claimed that Judge is the new face of baseball. This cover is additional proof of this fact. Now all Yankees’ fans must be wondering if AL MVP is the next award on deck for their rising star.
