This is painful to watch.

While Aaron Judge secured his place in baseball history, a fan in left field came painfully close to securing a huge payday. Instead, he watched a historic home run ball bounce into the bullpen.
Judge launched a 94 mph sinker off of Toronto Blue Jays reliever Tim Mayza in the seventh inning on Wednesday to secure a 5-3 lead for the New York Yankees en route to an 8-3 win. More importantly, the two-run blast was his 61st of the season to tie Roger Maris for the most single-season home runs in AL history.
The fan had his glove ready ... and when he reached over some railing in front of him to catch it -- the legendary cowhide touched his mitt's webbing!!!
Unfortunately for the guy, it caromed off his hand and landed safely in the Jays' bullpen ... something that clearly crushed the man.
Video from the game's broadcast in Canada showed the guy was absolutely devastated over the fumble -- throwing his mitt and hat in disgust afterward.
