Aaron Judge’s wife Samantha supports Yankees captain at presser

by admin

Aaron Judge wasn’t the only star at his press conference Wednesday to announce his new contract.

The Yankees slugger’s wife, Samantha Bracksieck – who looked stunning in a patterned blazer – received a bouquet of white roses from manager Aaron Boone. The brunette beauty was all smiles while posing for photos with Judge and his parents, Patty and Wayne Judge.

Prior to the photo op, Samantha sat alongside the AL MVP as he was named the 16th captain in franchise history. Judge is the Yankees’ first captain since Derek Jeter retired in 2014. The Yankees legend and fellow former team captain Willie Randolph attended the press conference and sat near the podium with Judge and his wife.

The couple returned to New York after vacationing in Hawaii, which followed the news of his historic deal. The free-agent superstar and the Yankees agreed to a nine-year, $360 million contract.

During the press conference, Judge shared that he and Bracksieck made the choice to stay in the New York.

“I think it was valuable to see some other places and hear some opinions but once that was all done, I got a chance to sit down with my wife and talk about a couple of things,” Judge said. “We both kinda came to the decision that was in our hearts, which is we belong in New York, we belong in this city.

“There is a lot of unfinished business here in New York, and I’m looking forward to finishing that business and trying to leave a legacy here for the next group of guys coming behind me.”

Bracksieck has been by Judge’s side through his highs and lows with the Yankees. In October, she held hands with the All-Star outfielder while walking to a press conference after hitting his 62nd homer to become the AL single-season home run record-holder.

Judge and Bracksieck recently celebrated their first wedding anniversary after tying the knot in Hawaii last December. They are fairly private about their longtime relationship, but it is known that they dated in high school.
