Poll: Is Judge Sharing Screen With Penn State Cool?

Beaver Stadium -- David Hague

The New York Yankees play the Baltimore Orioles at 1:05 Saturday.

The same day, Penn State football plays Northwestern at 3:30.

By the time the Penn State game kicks off, its possible that Aaron Judge will have already hit his 62nd home run, which would break Roger Maris’ record 61 years to the day he set it.

But if he doesn’t set the record Penn State might have to share ESPN’s spotlight with the Yankees.

As it did last week, ESPN will show footage of Judge’s at-bats— if he’s still on No. 61, that is— regardless of what’s going on in its scheduled programming.

Last week, ESPN showed Judge hitting during Clemson’s overtime thriller at Wake Forest.

Just like last week, some people aren’t happy about this, and this time, more Penn State fans are expressing their displeasure.

There are also non-Penn State fans that aren’t happy about it.

Both Penn State football and the Yankees have a big fan base, and plenty of Penn State fans are also Yankees fans.

There are arguments to be made for both sides, and to be clear, ESPN will not be cutting away from the Penn State game entirely, only switching to a split screen if Judge is at bat stuck on 61.

It’s understandable for Penn State fans to be upset about anything that would interfere with watching their team. Its also understandable for ESPN to want to emphasize what could be a historic day in baseball history.

So what do you think? Is Judge’s quest worth being broadcast in the middle of the Penn State game, or should it stay where it was originally scheduled?

Is Aaron Judge’s home-run record chase worth sharing the screen with Penn State-Northwestern?
