A fan who caught Aaron Judge's American League-record 62nd home run has reportedly been given $2 million by the owner of a sports memorabilia auction shop.
The guy who saw Judge's historic shot at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas, on Tuesday night, Cory Youmans, was contacted and emailed by JP Cohen, president of Memory Lane Inc.
in Tustin, California, according to a statement to The Associated Press on Wednesday. Youmans, according to Cohen, is yet to respond.
Cohen told the AP over the phone on Wednesday, "I feel the offer is much above reasonable, assuming he is prepared to sell it.
The home run moved Judge above Roger Maris for the American League season record, which many regard to be the "clean" standard for baseball
because the only players in the National League who have hit more home runs have been linked to doping.
