Watch this young Yankees fan completely lose it after getting Aaron Judge's autograph

Yankees slugger Aaron Judge has a certain effect on fans. It certainly helps that he gifts them with more in-game souvenirs than just about every other player in the game (obviously, with the exception of his teammate), but there has to be something more than that to inspire fans to don full judicial attire to midsummer baseball games in his honor.

Prior to Friday's Grapefruit League game against the Braves, this young fan was absolutely giddy upon receiving an autograph from Judge:

The intimacy and informality of Spring Training are what make it so great. Thanks to that, this kid will have a moment -- and a jersey -- to remember for the rest of his life ... at least once he recovers from the thrill of the moment.
