The 16th captain of the New York Yankees is a superstar in the making and his humble personality doesn’t hurt his fame either. More than anything though, Aaron Judge is an idol to kids, who he tries to help at every opportunity. His charity organization, the Aaron Judge ALL RISE Foundation, is a testament to his desire to help kids grow into responsible citizens.

The Yank is often seen playing with kids during intervals between innings at his games, and it’s heartwarming to watch. He has commented on how he had loved watching his favorite sportspersons, like Derek Jeter, Michael Jordan, and LeBron James give back to the community. Recently, Judge gave an inspiring message to kids telling them they can do anything.
