Here’s Why Aaron Judge Wears The Number 99 On His Jersey



Flash forward six years and Aaron Judge has become the cornerstone of the Yankees team, who haven’t won a World Series Championship since 2009. Season after season, No. 99 continues to impress with big numbers, impressive home runs, and a team spirit that some fans haven’t seen since the Derek Jeter era. Interestingly, Judge’s connection to his jersey number was something that he built on his own. When he first joined the ball club, he requested to wear either No. 44 or No. 35, but neither was available, according to Sports Illustrated. The New York Yankees slugger took the jersey that was offered to him and went out to play ball.

“They gave it to me in spring training and it just kind of stuck with me a little bit,” Judge told NJ Advance Media in August 2016. “It’s grown on me a little bit,” he admitted. And while other numbers have become available to him over the years, Judge has chosen to stick with No. 99. “Yeah, I don’t see why not. It’s a good number,” he told the outlet.
