Melky Cabrera Robbed Aaron Judge Of A Home Run, Then Pulled The Hidden Ball Prank Which Fooled Michael Kay and John Sterling [Video]

New York Yankees fans watching last night’s game on the television or listening on the radio were briefly misled by the play-by-play voices on each broadcast — and for good reason. Aaron Judge — currently the most prolific longball hitter in baseball — blasted a deep drive to left in the notoriously hitter-friendly Guaranteed Rate Field. White Sox left fielder Melky Cabrera made a jumping attempt to catch it and then acted as if he hadn’t caught it.

Both Michael Kay (television) and John Sterling (radio) were understandably tricked and went into their home run calls.

To be fair, Cabrera’s prank was as effective as it was unnecessary.
