At a glance

  • The estimates on the value of Aaron Judge’s 62nd record-breaking home run range from hundreds of thousands of dollars to millions. The actual price paid, of course, will depend on how badly a collector wants it.
  • But the fan who caught the ball probably won’t need it to pay his bills.
  • According to Bob Nightengale of USA Today Sports: “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.”
