A young fan at his first Yankees game was ecstatic to see Aaron Judge homer
One such fan is Massimo Greco, who is just two weeks shy of turning 5 years old. In anticipation of his birthday (as well as his mother and brother's), the family went to the Yankees' game on Thursday night. The Angels won the game with a 10-5 comeback victory, but the Greco family won the night.

Greco hoped that Judge, his favorite player, would hit a home run for him. He even had his hair made to look like Judge's semi-mohawk and held a sign with the Ruthian request.
The phenomenal rookie delivered:
Once Greco and his father, Jason, saw the ball flying out of the park, they went berserk.
It has definitely been a good day to be a young baseball fan.
The Grecos also got the chance to talk about their once-in-a-lifetime televised moment, mentioning that at 2:22 p.m. this afternoon, Greco said, "I hope Aaron Judge hits a home run for me today."
Anytime you make a kid cheer your name in a Dio-like voice, you're doing something right.
When Greco spoke later with MLB.com real-time correspondent Randy Whitney, he had the perfect response to Judge's blast: "Thanks for making my first game awesome, Aaron!"
