Judge was shown on the big screen at the U.S. Open during Rafael Nadal's match against Leonardo Mayer after the Yanks beat the Red Sox, 5-1, earlier in the day and, for once lately, he wasn't striking out. In fact the big guy seemed to be going long with an attractive young woman at his side.
The young lady is Jen Flaum, a Franklin Lakes, N.J. native, self-described Yankees fan and recent University of Michigan grad, according to the NY Daily News. It is not known how long the pair have been keeping company.
What is known is that Flaum, whom both Judge and the Yankees(huh?) follow on Instagram recently posted a photo of herself at Yankee Stadium with the caption, "I got 99 problems but A. Judge ain't one."
Now before anyone jumps to conclusions about Judge's awful slump, stalking or his new companion's effect on his game — the Olivia Munn Curse so to speak — let's allow the relationship to run its natural course. We all know one hit leads to another.
And while Judge may not have have Derek Jeter's five World Series rings, it sure looks like he is learning to play the former Yankee great's notable off-field game.
Wonder if his gift bags come with one of those white wigs and a foam gavel?
