The New York Yankees have reloaded their system with young talent over the past few years, giving their fans ample reason to be excited. On the offensive side, Aaron Judge is one of the Yankees most promising young sluggers. Judge is a massive human being stepping into the box at 6’7, 275 lbs. and rivals Giancarlo Stanton as a physical specimen. Before watching Aaron Judge swing, I expected that his swing would be below average form a technical standpoint simply because he can afford to make more mistakes than smaller players. This expectation was false. Despite being a very muscular person, Judge does not rely on his strength as the sole reason for his success. Instead it supports a very efficient swing that would work with the smallest of players. In other words, Aaron Judge’s swing is the cake while his strength may be the icing.
