If Your Name Is Judge, Celebrate Aaron Judge’s Historical Home Run With A Special Offer From Home Run Inn Pizza

Happy Wednesday everyone. Well, Aaron Judge of the New York Yankees finally hit home run number 62 to take the top spot in the American League history books for most home runs in one season (American League). Sitting on #61 for a few games now, Judge calmly stepped to the plate last night in Arlington, Texas and drove a line shot into the left field bleachers to capture the baseball world’s attention – #62 surpassing Roger Maris (also of the New York Yankees). It took 61 years for the American League record to be broken. Congrats to Aaron Judge and his family on this amazing record and accomplishment.

This morning, I received the following press release which really caught my attention. If you know a classmate, a co-worker, a teacher, a friend, a family friend, or a baseball community member who has the legal first, middle, or last name of Judge, you should definitely read further. And if this Judgian friend/relative/co-worker loves pizza, you may become their new best friend!!! Read below…

“Although we are the official pizza of the Chicago Cubs and Wrigley Field, we are always up for saluting impressive achievements, and in this case one that is literally a home run,” said Gina (Perrino) Bolger, Senior Vice President and fourth-generation family member of Home Run Inn. “Since the 1920s, our brand has always been associated with two things, baseball and delicious thin crust pizza that knocks it out of the park. We congratulate number 99 and are happy to help ‘Judges’ nationwide celebrate this exciting new addition to the history books.”

Celebrating its 75th anniversary year, Home Run Inn is a proud, family-owned business—one with deep roots in the city of Chicago. In 1923, the original Home Run Inn location opened as a small tavern on Chicago’s South Side. Founded by Mary and Vincent Grittani, the tavern received its name one fateful day when a baseball from the neighborhood park smashed through one of the tavern’s windows, a home run for some young slugger on the sandlot. In 1947, after that baseball made history, Mary and her son-in-law, Nick Perrino, crafted its iconic Chicago pizza recipe. Today, Home Run Inn operates nine pizzerias throughout the Chicagoland area, with its frozen pizzas sold in more than 40 states.


Home Run Inn is considered Chicago’s very own thin crust pizza known for its irresistible flavor, hand-pinched buttery crust, zesty sauce, plentiful cheese and homemade sausage. The small tavern of the 1920s was named Home Run Inn in 1947. Now, the company has nine pizzerias throughout the Chicagoland area and frozen pizza sold in more than 40 states. Home Run Inn also is currently the official pizza of the Chicago Cubs and Wrigley Field and sold at Chicago’s Midway International Airport. Still family-owned and operated, Home Run Inn ranks among the top 10 in pizza brands sold nationally and number one in the Chicagoland area.

Offer is only good for one day, so hop on the phone, text your friend, message your buddy whose legal first, middle or last name is Judge. They could be receiving a free pizza from Home Run Inn Pizza just for being a Judge!!! Good luck everyone and if you get ahold of a Judge and a free pizza, let me know!
