The San Francisco Giants heavily recruited New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge this winter before he re-signed with the Pinstripes on a nine-year, $360 million deal.
Giants stars Logan Webb and Brandon Crawford were among those who met with Judge while he was in San Francisco, attempting to convince him to make the move out West. Once they found out Judge was staying in the Bronx, Webb said he and the Giants were pretty disappointed, per Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle.
The Giants offered Judge a contract in the neighborhood of $360 million, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reported in December. While Judge grew up a Giants fan living in California, the Yankees matched that offer and the star slugger ultimately decided to honor his commitment to the franchise that drafted him.
