Whoever wrote the script for Opening Day at Yankee Stadium, we thank you for what we were treated to. Not only did the Bronx Bombers come away with a win over the San Francisco Giants, but Aaron Judge picked up right where he left off.

Last season, Judge belted 62 home runs, setting the new American League record. It led to him taking home AL MVP honors as well. So, how was he going to start the new season for the New York Yankees? By going yard of course. We loved seeing this!

There it goes, SEE YA. Thousands of people got off their seats after Judge belted that homer, as it was a true no-doubter. Judge has once again reminded us of how incredible he is at the dish.
Judge was rumored to potentially leave during free agency, but he's back in pinstripes. We wouldn't have it any other way.
“I didn’t want to go anywhere,” Judge said via the New York Post. “I was pretty vocal about that from the beginning and then you gotta go through the free-agency process. But all in all, this is where I wanted to be. I’m happy I’m here. It’s tough to think about being anywhere else.”
With Judge back with the Yankees, signing a $360 million deal, NY fans are hoping that this team can get back to the World Series next fall. Expectations are through the roof for this team, and the same can be said for Judge.
Winning the AL East won't be enough for NY in '23. It's World Series or bust for the Yankees. In order for them to bring home the title, a big season will be needed from Judge. We have no doubt No. 99 will be electric the rest of the way.
