Aaron Judge is innocent.
At least, that’s what he and the New York Yankees are saying.
The AL home run king came under fire Monday night when he took a look at his team’s dugout, which Toronto Blue Jays announcer Buck Martinez said was “really unusual.”
Later in the at bat, Judge hit a 462-foot home run to give the Bombers a 7–0 lead.

Blue Jays play-by-play announcer Dan Schulman did not “want to unknowingly throw accusations” but Judge was still asked about it.
Judge claimed he was upset with the “squeak” in the dugout after manager Aaron Boone had already been ejected, but the Blue Jays believe Judge was looking for information on possible wild pitches. On Tuesday, however, he elaborated a bit more, saying the whole thing is not a problem.
“I don’t see why it’s a story to be honest,” Judge told the New York Daily News.

“If your announcers want to come to an agreement about it, they can say whatever they want,” he continued, adding that he had “chosen words” for what Schulman and Martinez said, but chose not to mention them.
“I’m not happy about it, but people can say what they want. I still have a game to play. I have things to do.” added.
A Major League Baseball investigation is unlikely because, as Boone said“Nothing that happened last night was against the rules.”
The Blue Jays have apparently taken issue with where base coaches were standing during the at bat, Judge could have gotten information from first base coach Reggie Willits.
The Yankees were fined $100,000 in 2017 for violating sign theft rules in 2015 and 2016, which included using the dugout and playing room phone to transmit signs.
