Dallas fan on destiny of record-setting Aaron Judge home run ball

ARLINGTON, Texas – Walking through an outfield hall at Globe Life Field, high-fiving with fans and surrounded by a sea of ​​cameras, it was almost as if Cory Youmans had hit a huge home run.

Instead, he hit the jackpot.

Youmans made the catch of his life Tuesday night when he caught the ball that New York Yankees hitter Aaron Judge started for his 62nd homer-record in the American League.

The historic souvenir sailed into the front row of Section 31 in left field, a drive-judge hit to start game two of a day-night doubleheader against the Texas Rangers. Youmans caught it spontaneously.

Dallas native Youmans works in finance and there’s no telling what the ball might be worth. With security guards around him as he took the ball for authentication, Youmans was asked what he intended to do with the prize.

“Good question. I didn’t think about it,” he said.

After the Yankees lost 3-2, Judge said he no longer had the home run ball.

“I don’t know where it is,” he said. “We’ll see what happens with that. It would be great to get it back, but it’s a souvenir for a fan. He made a great catch out there and they have every right to it.”

Youmans was among the 38,832 spectators, the largest, who watched a baseball game at the 3-year-old ballpark.
