Is Yankees rookie Aaron Judge already the Face of Major League Baseball?
Social media can be so exhausting. Take the case of Aaron Judge. The Yankees rookie is having an outstanding rookie season: .329 batting average (third in the AL), 30 home runs (first in MLB), 66 RBIs (second in the AL), 75 runs scored second in MLB).
However, Monday night, in front of a big audience, Judge hit a bunch of long home runs off of a batting practice pitcher in a non-game setting and many people delcared him, "The Face of Baseball."

Trout, Harper, Betts, Bryant, Kershaw. The whole "new face of baseball" thing is a joke. Call it what it is. Most important Yankee.— Todd Brommelkamp (@ToddBrommelkamp) July 11, 2017
