Dan Zlotnick was in the right place at the right time.

Zlotnick, a Northern Westchester resident, snagged Aaron Judge's 50th home run Monday at Yankee Stadium, which set a new record for most home runs by a rookie.

"So I just caught Aaron Judge's 50th home run ball," Zlotnick tweeted. "Woah."

Zlotnick is no stranger to the baseball diamond. He was a star pitcher for Somers High School, which won three straight Section 1 championships, throwing shutouts in consecutive championship games. He is currently an assistant coach for the varsity baseball team.

The ball caromed off a seat and went into the Zlotnick's section in the outfield. A scrum ensued for the ball which soon rolled right to where Zlotnick was standing and he effortlessly picked it up

After catching the ball, Zlotnick got a chance to meet Judge and give him his memento in exchange for signed balls and bats.

"For those wondering if I will sell Aaron Judge 's 50th HR ball, absolutely not," Zlotnick tweeted. "It's his. Congratulations to him. Aaron Judge is a great guy, and I got mighty lucky."

When he's not catching baseballs, Zlotnick is an acoustic folk-rock based musician who performs in New York City and throughout the Hudson Valley. To hear some of his music, click here .
