Aaron Judge now has a judge-themed cheering section at Yankee Stadium

If you were getting tired of judge-related Aaron Judge jokes, settle in! They are now a permanent fixture of Yankee Stadium.

On Monday, the team unveiled a special customized section in the right-field seats labeled "The Judge's Chambers" an 18-seat cluster demarcatedby some courtroom-style wood-paneling.

A YES report said that 18 fans will be selected each game to sit in the section and will be given a wig and gavel to really look the part.
