Aaron Judge Dismisses Orioles’ Camden Yards

The verdict is in and Yankees slugger Aaron Judge has ruled against Oriole Park at Camden Yards, home to Baltimore’s MLB franchise.

Judge slammed the 30-year-old ballpark following New York’s 5-4 win over the O’s on Tuesday night. “It’s a travesty, man. I’m pretty upset,” Judge said, via Bryan Hoch. “It just looks like a Create-A-Park now.”

A 399-foot double off the left-field wall prompted Judge’s comment. He was of the opinion that in any other ballpark, his double would’ve resulted in a home run. And he’s not wrong.

According to popular Twitter account @would_it_dong – an account that uses ballpark measurements to determine what would and would not be a HR – Judge’s double would’ve resulted in a home run in every other ball park across Major League Baseball.

Watch the travesty of a double unfold in the video below.

Judge wasn’t alone in his assessment of Baltimore’s home park. Yanks manager Aaron Boone told Ben Hoch post game: “He almost had three (homers), but Build Your Own Park got him.”

As Boone briefly alluded to, Judge hit two homers and nearly had a third. His almost three dingers were part of an exceptional night at the dish for Judge. The 30-year-old right fielder finished the win with four hits, two of which were homers, a single, and the aforementioned double.

Less than 40 games into the season, Judge leads the league in homers (14) and ranks third in RBI (30). Had he swung the stick somewhere other than Camden Yards, those numbers would likely be even more impressive.

  1. I have to give him this one. The fence is ridiculous, and I would argue baseball terrorism against hitters lol. With all the advantages pitchers have today coming in throwing 97, not allowing hitters to look at video in the dugout anymore, allowing the shift, with a buffet of rosin on the mound to select from, only needing to make it 5 innings before handing it over to a herd of 100 mph throwing 1/3 inning righty/lefty “specialists” throwing their brains out for the remaining 4 innings…they’re moving the freaking fences back 20 feet further to make it harder? Is this an episode of Punked being played on MLB hitters? Okay, I’m a little “pro hitter” you might say, but still, the fans came to watch some hitting too.
