The young Yankees fan who became a viral sensation on Tuesday shed more tears of joy on Wednesday when he met his hero, New York slugger Aaron Judge.

It came hours after cameras captured Derek Rodriguez, 9, tearfully hugging Blue Jays fan Mike Lanzillotta after Lanzillotta snagged Judge's sixth-inning home run ball and handed it to Derek almost without pause.

Derek leapt into his arms and burst into tears, overcome with the emotion of receiving a home-run ball hit by his favourite player.

"I'm really excited. My dream is to meet Aaron Judge, and well, I'm really happy that I got the ball from his home run," Rodriguez told The Athletic.
