IKF’s first Yankees homer
Isiah Kiner-Falefa has taken a lot of criticism this season for his play, especially recently. However, he stepped up against the Red Sox on Saturday night, where he blasted his first home run of the season that tied the game. He also drove in the winning run on a squeeze bunt. After the game, he made a trade with the fan who caught the ball, and IKF got the ball in exchange for Aaron Judge’s autograph. Here’s what he said about that:
