Aaron Judge A monster rookie season catapulted Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge into the national limelight, but there’s a lot about the 25-year-old that sports fans around the country are unaware of. He’s an All-Star on the field, but he’s living out of two bags in a Times Square hotel.
Aaron Judge parents
Aaron Judge was born in Linden, California on April 26, 1992. Aaron was adopted a day after his birth by his parents, Patty and Wayne Judge, who is now retired teachers from Linden. The judge was raised with his adoptive elder brother, John.
Aaron, around the age of ten or eleven, asked his parents why he didn’t look like them. The biracial Judge had nothing in common with his white parents. The fact that he was adopted had no effect on his relationship with Patty and Wayne. The following is what Judge told The New York Post:
“I was about 10 or 11 at the time, and we didn’t look anything alike, so I started asking questions, and they told me I was adopted and answered all of my questions, and that was that.” That was alright with me. It didn’t concern me since they were the only parents I’d ever known.”
“Aaron has an older brother, John, 29, who teaches English in Korea, and we’re very proud of him as well,” Patty told the publication. “Really, it was all predestined.”
Aaron finds no need to seek out his biological parents. The judge told Newsday that he has no feelings for them and will not waste time looking for them: “I only have one set of parents who reared me. That’s the way it is.” He went on:
“Some children develop in their mothers’ stomachs; I grew in my mother’s heart.” She has always shown me love and care since I was a baby. I’ve never had to think about anything differently or worry about anything.”
