Hence, when the host asked Judge about his favorite Taylor Swift song, he stood there for a while. But before he did that, he moved towards the camera and his famous dog, a Miniature Dachshund named Penny, came and swiftly went by doing a sniffing walk, easily stealing attention from the captain himself. 

Coming back to Judge’s favorite Swift song, he did not answer and said “Wow” in astonishment. However, others did reply. While Jose Trevino could not select one of the songs, Ian Hamilton said, “22”. Isiah Kiner Falefa and Gleyber Torres had the same answer, “Shake it off.” Meanwhile, the highlight once again came, and the Yankees showed Judge saying his favorite song of Taylor, which is “Bad Blood.” Seems like Judge is also a Swiftie.

How are fans reacting to Judge’s special guest?

Penny Judge is taking home most of the compliments, while fans are amazed watching the Bronx Bombers telling their favorite songs.
