While Aaron Judge has hit a lot of home runs in his career, the one he hit on Tuesday had a special feel to it, thanks to two fans in the stands.

With Judge’s New York Yankees trailing the Toronto Blue Jays 1-0 in the sixth inning, Judge launched a long ball into the second deck of Toronto’s Rogers Centre to tie the game. That’s when things got great. A Blue Jays fan initially came up with the ball and even briefly put his arms up to celebrate. Then, he noticed a young boy sitting in the row behind him. The youngster was not only a Yankees fan, but was also wearing a Judge jersey.

The man who came up with the ball promptly handed it to the Judge fan, prompting a truly heartwarming reaction.

Good luck watching that without at least getting a little choked up.

Unsurprisingly, the man who gave the ball up was met with universal praise.

It just doesn’t get much better than this. Occasionally, a home run ball might be a record-setter and worth some money. But outside of those occassions and maybe a player’s first long ball (or some other milestone), finding a kid to give the ball to is never a bad idea.
