Aaron Judge, Jimmy Fallon film secret 'Tonight Show' bit

Aaron Judge went from dominating The Show to mugging on “The Tonight Show.”

After the Yankees slugger was named the American League MVP this week, he was ready to have some fun with NBC host Jimmy Fallon.

Spies exclusively tell us that Judge slipped into the MLB NYC Flagship Store in Midtown to join the former “Saturday Night Live” comic for a pre-taped segment to air on “The Tonight Show” later on Friday night.

We hear that Judge was disguised as an umpire, while Fallon dressed as a catcher, and the pair pranked shoppers at the venue by revealing their true identities.


The two were disguised as they played a prank on fans.

“It was so fun,” said an insider of the Friday stunt across the street from Fallon’s 30 Rock studio and Radio City Music Hall.

Some fans were apparently privy to the appearance as they lined up inside the store waiting for Judge to appear.

It’s not the first time Judge has gone in disguise for a Fallon comedy bit. In 2017 as a rookie, he went incognito as a man on the street to ask unwitting New Yorkers what they thought of him.

“I’m here at Bryant Park to see what Yankees fans think about Aaron Judge,” he said in the segment at the time. While he was lesser known back then, a typical reaction was, “I think Judge is going to be a star.”

He just had a historic year by breaking Roger Maris’ 61-year-old AL home run record with 62 homers.
