New York Yankees star Aaron Judge has done all he can in 2021 to set himself up for the future. His final act before 2022? Marrying his longtime girlfriend, Samantha Bracksieck, during a small ceremony in Hawaii.
Classic Judge, right? Low key. Beautiful location. Limited attendance. And out of nowhere! We never even knew the couple got engaged in the past year! But the Daily Mail was all over it, capturing photos of the newlyweds at the Montage Kapalua Bay hotel in Lahaina, Hawaii.
What a year it’s been for the slugger. Judge carried the Yankees for the most part during the 2021 season, serving as the team’s most consistent player by far. He logged his first fully healthy campaign since 2017. He established himself as a face of the franchise (if that wasn’t already clear) and likely next captain. He expressed his desire to be a Yankee for life.
All that’s left? A contract extension. Unfortunately that can’t happen before the new year, but we’ll be waiting for that to be one of the Yankees’ first moves post-lockout.
Judge and Bracksieck are believed to have began dating back when he was attending Fresno State University and have been together ever since.
We wish we had more info for ya, but the rest is gossip. Let’s keep this free from the speculated chatter and enjoy the moment!
Yankees star Aaron Judge got married in Hawaii over the weekend.
For whatever reason, this part of Judge’s life has been beyond private, but that’s par for the course with him since he’s not an outwardly public guy. Take a look at his Instagram and Twitter. You won’t see any recent photos of the couple, and Bracksieck doesn’t even have any social media accounts.
By our quick research, this is the last we could find:
That’s seven years ago … unless this is her from 2017? We’re really not sure.
Nonetheless, we’re eager to see photos of the wedding from Judge himself. Confirmation from the big man would be refreshing, as would some pictures that weren’t taken from a guy hiding in a bush.
Congratulations to the happy couple, and here’s to an upcoming, colossal new year that will, in more ways than one, perhaps feature the most important chapter of Judge’s life.
