Yankees Judge Shows Power In BP
New York Yankees stud slugging prospect Aaron Judge participated in a batting practice session in Tampa yesterday and showed that he hasn't skipped a beat.
Judge showed to be in mid-season form as he prepares for spring training; which starts in a mere hours. On Tuesday, the team's #1 prospect got in the batter's box to face a Yankee legend in a batting practice session. It was Andy Pettitte.
Pettitte was visiting the Yankees "Captain's Camp" as the team looks to prepare its young talent with the leadership they need to succeed in the majors. Pettitte hit the radar gun pretty well; his fastball averaged about 87mph and had a bit of movement. Once warmed up, it was time to face the players, and the Yankees top prospect didn't disappoint.
Judge took Pettitte deep multiple times, including a pair on back-to-back swings. It was a clear display of his raw power that the Yankees may need to call upon this coming season.
