Aaron Judge made a young fan's day by signing his own home run ball

Every young fan dreams of getting his favorite player's autograph. Not only does the act of getting the autograph mean you get to interact with your idol, but the autograph itself serves as a permanent reminder of that moment. Lately, fans and players have seemingly discovered a new way to interact -- the pregame or mid-inning game of catch.

But, what if you could do both: Get an autograph and have a catch with your hero? After catching Judge's home run in the eighth inning, that's exactly what this young fan got to do. Judge was even impressed by his skills:

In the span of minutes, this fan caught a home run ball from Judge, got that very ball signed by him and had a catch with him.

Many baseball fans go a lifetime without doing any of those things and this kid squeezed them into a single afternoon at the park.
