It's hard to even fathom the sheer number of New York Yankees fans that look up to superstar Aaron Judge as both a hero and icon. Heck, he's so great that an outpouring of buffs of other teams around MLB probably view him in the same light. Well, two young Pinstripes devotees were awarded the opportunity to meet the two-time All-Star ahead of the Yanks game against the Rays on Tuesday night at Tropicana Field. During the exchange, Judge surprised them by gifting his bat and batting gloves, along with a pat on the back, bringing the youngsters to tears as he walked away to go complete his warmups. 

Assuming those were tears of sheer happiness, we absolutely love to see it! Forget the captivating competition for two seconds. THIS right here is what professional sports and stardom is all about.

Elegance and selflessness were displayed at their absolute finest by the face of the Yankees franchise.

Well done, No.99. Well done.
