Bassett says judge lied about his controversial home run incident against the Blue Jays

The incident a few weeks earlier in the series between the New York Yankees and Toronto Blue Jays, in which Aaron Judge was accused of anticipating pitches by looking in his dugout, has long been remembered by players on the Canadian team, who Still don’t believe the explanation given by the captain of the Bronx Mules.

One of them is pitcher Chris Bassitt, who claimed that Judge lied when he said he was only looking toward the dugout to send a reassuring message to his teammates after manager Aaron Boone ejected.

On that occasion, Judge hit a home run seconds after looking toward the Yankees dugout, something that the game’s announcers and commentators also noticed.

“The Yankees knew we were calling pitches. Is that illegal? No, it’s not illegal. Judge’s explanation? I don’t have a problem with that. Was it a lie? Yes, he lied. In the end, what Do we want to be there?” Did the judge tell us we were over estimating our pitches?” Bassitt told Jumboy Media.

The outfielder, for his part, gave his version of events to the press after that meeting.

“There was a lot of discomfort in our dugout, which I didn’t like, considering we were up 6-0 when Boone was ejected,” Judge told Trying. I wanted to see who was yelling in the dugout. I wanted to keep going, so I was thinking: ‘Who’s still talking?'”

In turn, Blue Jays reliever, Jay Jackson admitted his guilt for what happened, assuring that he was announcing his pitches.

“I was announcing pitches with my mechanics just in case my hand passed over my ear. When I threw my fastballs I did it faster than I threw sliders. They realized it,” explained the pitcher. . “I have to improve my mechanics and do better next time.”
