Aaron Judge quotes
“Everything’s the same. I’m just bigger than everybody else. The strike zone may be taller, because I’m taller, but it’s what I’m used to. I’ve had the same strike zone since I was a kid. This is my body, this is my strike zone. I make the same adjustments everyone else does.”- Judge
“Both of my parents are teachers, so they were big into the college thing. It kind of made my decision pretty easy.”- Judge
“Christian. Faith, Family, then Baseball. If what you did yesterday still seems big today, then you haven’t done anything today!”- Judge
