New York Yankee Captain Aaron Judge Joins ‘Rubble & Crew’

The American League MVP voices himself in the special episode ‘The Crew Builds a Ballpark’ coming this summer to Nickelodeon, Corus’ Treehouse and STACKTV.

American League MVP and Captain of the New York Yankees, Aaron Judge, will appear in an upcoming episode of the popular animated preschool series and PAW Patrol spinoff, Rubble & Crew, produced by Spin Master Entertainment.

Set in the community of Builder Cove, a neighboring town to PAW Patrol’s Adventure Bay, Rubble & Crew centers on Rubble, the funny and optimistic leader of the construction crew. In the small, quickly growing town, lots of things are still needed for the community to come together, including a bigger airport, train station, bridges, tunnels, schools, fire stations, parks, and a ballpark! Rubble and his construction pup family must work together to tackle and build all the projects the town needs.

In the episode titled “The Crew Builds a Ballpark,” Rubble and his crew build the ballpark with the “bow-wow” best in baseball. The MLB superstar and dog dad will voice himself in the animated series, donning his signature New York Yankees uniform. The episode airs this summer on Nickelodeon (U.S.), Corus’ Treehouse, and STACKTV (Canada).

“As a proud dog dad, it was a blast to join Rubble and his friends in this adventure,” said Judge. “Through my foundation work, I understand the importance of reaching kids and teaching them the importance of teamwork. It was so fun to combine two things I’m passionate about – dogs and baseball - to deliver this valuable message.”

Spin Master, MLB, and Nickelodeon are planning a host of integrations and activations for fans and families tied to Judge’s appearance in Rubble & Crew. Details will be announced closer to air date.
