Didi Gregorius used his day off to pursue his hobby of drawing teammates on baseballs

From his tweets, we know that Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorius has an affinity for visual forms of expression. Though it started with him assigning each of his teammates an emoji, that was just an introduction to the form.
With the Yankees locked in to hosting the American League Wild Card game, Gregorius was given the day off for Sunday's regular-season finale against the Blue Jays. As one does, he used that day off to pursue his hobbies. In this case, that meant drawing Aaron Judge on a baseball.

Of course, like Vincent van Gogh, Gregorius is a native of the Netherlands. If his representation of Judge is any indication, there may be another great Dutch artist on the way.
Watch the Yankees host the Twins in the AL Wild Card Game: Tuesday, 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT on ESPN.
