Sunday afternoon was all smiles for the Yankees, who beat the Orioles, 14-3, to finish off a sweep. Leading the way was rookie sensation Aaron Judge, who clobbered two long balls to push his season total to an MLB-best 21. One of the homers was rocketed an amazing 495 feet, clearing the left-center-field bleachers at Yankee Stadium.
So, after the game, Judge and fellow slugger Matt Holliday decided to show off some new threads, inspired by "The Sandlot."
Ham Porter would be proud.
Judge told MLB.com's Bryan Hoch that the "Great Hambino" shirts were sent in the mail to him and Holliday. Not a bad delivery.
It's not the first time the Yankees have been linked to "The Sandlot," either, as in 2015, they teamed up to recreate the scene where Scotty Smalls realizes that he lost a baseball signed by Babe Ruth.
It's just too bad that Brian McCann has moved on to Houston and can no longer recreate his own version of Ham Porter for them. If he doesn't get one of those shirts, we can easily imagine his reaction.
