I can't get enough of Aaron Judge.  I mean, I really can't.  The fact that he is so fun to watch and has a similar disposition to Derek Jeter just adds to his likability.  His gap filled smiled, his genuine attitude and his overall presence has made fans All Rise when they hear his name.  And 18 fans can do this every game now thanks to the Yankee Stadium new seating conveniently named, The Judge's Chambers.

"On Monday, the team revealed "The Judge's Chambers," a specific cheering section for the Yankee outfielder. The team added fake wood paneling around three rows of seats at the back of section 104 in right field to make it look like a jury box. The back panel details the name of the section," reported the New York Daily News.


Although you can't buy tickets to sit in the 'Chambers', fans can wear Judge gear and take their chances on being selected for this specialty seating. Like the humble player the newest Yankee star is, Judge expressed his excitement for the new fan experience.  "I was shocked, you know. I was surprised," Judge told the Associated Press. "I think it's going to be a pretty cool idea that the fans will like. It will be something the fans I really think will enjoy."

Another added feature to The Judge's Chambers is the judge-garb and gavels fans will be given to cheer in this section behind Judge. " Fans sitting in the Chambers Monday will be given black robes that featured Judge's No. 99 on the back to wear during the game, though they cannot keep those. They'll receive styrofoam gavels, too, which they can take home with them"

Aaron Judge has been an incredible addition to this year's club.  Honoring him through this fan experience is equally incredible.  He touts 15 home runs on the season with a .321 batting average in 165 games.  Heck, I want to sit in the Judge's Chambers.  Maybe the Yankees will give me the honor in an upcoming home game this season! Wearing #99 seems just the right number for me as we pursue #28.
