MLB Awards: Aaron Judge unanimously named 2017 AL Rookie of the Year

Judge, 25, had a historic season offensively and was one of the best right fielders in the game, helping carry the Yankees to Game 7 of the AL Championship Series, which they lost to the eventual champion Houston Astros. Aaron Judge of the Yankees and Cody Bellinger of the Dodgers are favored to win Rookie of the Year honors when the votes are announced Monday night, November 13, 2017.

Judge will serve as a Pepsi spokesman and appear in marketing campaigns for the Pepsi, Diet Pepsi and Pepsi Zero Sugar brands. The company said it would work with Judge in 2018 and into the future, but did not immediately disclose further terms of the deal.

We are thrilled to welcome Aaron to the Pepsi family.

Pepsi was the official soft drink of Major League Baseball for the past 20 years, leading up to this season, when Coca-Cola took over. Bellinger capped his year by hitting more home runs than any other player in their age 21 season or younger except for Mel Ott and Eddie Mathews, two Hall of Famers.

He's considered a shoo-in to be named American League Rookie of the Year.

The superstar's stately last name has also brought about a slew of punny souvenirs and fan rituals. But signing New York Yankees outfielder Aaron Judge is about as popular as you can get.

Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor is even known to be a fan.

For now, Judge will be associated with regular Pepsi, Toman said, unlike the company's deal with Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott, whose PepsiCo deal also includes the Frito Lay side of the business with Tostitos.
