Wife of Fan Who Caught the Aaron Judge Historic Home Run Ball Takes to Social Media to Boast

Talk about a souvenir.

It was almost as if Cory Youmans had hit a huge home run. Instead, he hit the jackpot. Youmans made the catch of a lifetime Tuesday night, snagging the ball New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge launched for his American League-record 62nd homer. Youmans, who hails from Dallas, works in the financial world, and there is no telling what the ball could be worth. With security personnel around him as he took the ball to be authenticated, Youmans was asked what he planned to do with the prize.

“Good question. I haven’t thought about it,” he said.

Soon after a local TV station posted a brief interview with Youmans in a walkway, sports reporter Bri Amaranthus tweeted: “THIS IS MY HUSBAND.” Amaranthus works in local media and is an alum of ABC’s “The Bachelor.”

Bri also posted a picture of the ball on Instagram:

After the Yankees lost 3-2, Judge said he didn’t have possession of the home run ball.

“I don’t know where it’s at,” he said. “We’ll see what happens with that. It would be great to get it back, but that’s a souvenir for a fan. He made a great catch out there, and they’ve got every right to it.”

Youmans was among the crowd of 38,832, the largest to watch a baseball game at the 3-year-old ballpark.
