Aaron Judge played catch with a fan in Seattle as the Yankees wrapped up their win

The ninth inning is usually the most tense time in a ballgame. And indeed, the final score was still far from official entering the last frame of the Yankees' 4-1 win on Thursday in Seattle.
The moment didn't get to Aaron Judge, though. Just before the bottom of the ninth began, he passed the time by playing catch with a young Mariners fan in the right-field stands:

Judge told's Josh Horton after the game that the catch was just a spur of the moment thing, but this isn't the first time that he's made a lucky fan's day that way, either.
Big RBI single? Check.
Leave with a victory? Check.
Make a new friend on the road? Check that off, too.
Judge just does it all.
