Bad news for everyone in baseball: Aaron Judge will not be defending his Home Run Derby crown this year at Nationals Park after the New York Yankees slugger ruled himself out of the competition.


The Judge told to ESPN that "there is no need to do it" after he won the Derby on his rookie season last year, beating his now teammate and then Miami Marlins' slugger Giancarlo Stanton on his own turf, being the 2017 All-Star Game hosted at Marlins Park.


There are a lot of fans that are claiming that the Home Run Derby King to change his mind and end up defending his title this year at Washington D.C., but Judge said that "pressure won't do anything" to change his mind.
