Aaron Judge nearly destroys the sign at the Toronto Blue Jays arena with a massive home run after “cheating” allegations

New York Yankees star Aaron Judge has left his mark at Rogers Center after being accused of “cheating”.

Judge’s 462-foot home run flew toward the WestJet flight deck, crashing into the sign and chipping off part of the maple leaf logo.

This prompted one Twitter fan to comment, “Give him the MVP already.”

While one wrote, “Within a few days Arson Judge has become #1 in Toronto…”

Another joked: “He doesn’t steal signs. He breaks them.”

This referred to allegations of fraud against the four-time All-Star due to comments from Blue Jays commentators Buck Martinez and Dan Schulman during their 7-4 loss to New York on Monday.

By the end of the eighth period, with New York leading 6-0, they seemed to suggest that Judge might have stolen signs.

“Where is he looking?” both asked Martinez commented that his sideways look between the bats was “really, very unusual.”

Schulman added that he “didn’t want to unknowingly throw allegations around.”

However, that didn’t stop her from further analyzing what she thought was odd behavior.

Reviewing the footage, Martinez said, “He looks at something and then the next move is this powerful swing and he hurls you into midfield.”

“I’ve never experienced that with him.”

When pressed about the comments on Tuesday, Judge brushed them aside, saying, according to the New York Daily News: Gary Phillips: “To be honest, I don’t understand why it’s a story.”

“If their broadcasters want to make a deal, they can say whatever they want.”

The judge continued, via Brian Hochthat he’s not “happy” about it, but people can say whatever they want.

“I still have one game ahead of me. I still have things to do.”

Yankees manager Aaron Boone also addressed the allegations, saying: Highthat “Nothing that happened last night was against the rules.”

The organization has also reportedly been told there will be no investigation into the matter by the league office.
