WATCH: Fan epically fails to grab Judge’s 62nd HR after jumping railing originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston
You gotta do what you gotta do.
A fan at Globe Life Field in Arlington, TX, jumped over the railing to try to grab Judge’s homer, but they weren’t close enough and another fan ended up catching the ball:
Here’s an video that’s more zoomed in:

The fan who jumped the railing was about nine seats away from where the ball landed, but the effort was appreciated.
On the flip side, the fan who did catch the homer, which was hit in Section 31, Row 1, Seat 3, was escorted away by security to have the ball authenticated, with an expected value of at least $2 million (h/t: Joe Trahan of WFAA Dallas).

A huge decision now awaits: keep the ball, sell it or give it back to Judge.
If the fan was to sell it, though, it wouldn’t exactly be for the money. The fan is a vice president at Fisher Investments, which manages $197 billion globally (h/t: Bob Nightengale of USA TODAY).
The man who caught the historic Aaron Judge baseball, Corey Youmans, doesn't exactly need the money.
He is a vice president at Fisher Investments, which manages $197 billion worldwide.
It may be the price of Judge's next contract.
