Aaron Judge goes unrecognized by Yankees fans in New York City

He may be the major league's home run leader and the rookie sensation who's quickly become the face of the New York Yankees, but Aaron Judge is still unrecognizable to some fans, even when he's staring them in the face.

The 25-year-old rookie did a skit on "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon" in which he talked to Yankees fans in New York City about... Aaron Judge.

Not only did fans not recognize the Yankees' star, one fan thought his name was Adam!


Aaron Judge said the Tonight Show skit turned out better than he thought because he is not a comedian or an interviewer. He said the NBC crew did a nice job of editing to make him look good. For the record, Judge said he interviewed around 20 fans and at least half recognized him quickly.

Although Judge is off to a great start in his young career, it looks like he's going to have to keep launching home runs if he wants to become a recognizable figure in the Big Apple.
