How did Aaron Judge’s wife meet the MLB superstar?

Aaron Judge has been named one of the contenders for the American League MVP award. This is the second time in his career that he has been selected as a finalist for the honor.

The pick comes on the heels of a historic season from Judge. In the final series of the regular season against the Texas Rangers, he hit his 62nd home run of the season, breaking the previous home run record set by fellow New York Yankees Roger Maris in 1961.

In addition to making history, Judge also beat Babe Ruth’s personal best. Ruth hit 60 home runs in 1927, a mark Judge surpassed with his 61st home run of the season against the Toronto Blue Jays in September.

The player was accompanied by his parents and wife Samantha Bracksieck. The couple got married in a lavish ceremony in Maui, Hawaii last December. Their wedding was originally supposed to be in 2020 but was pushed back due to Covid restrictions.

The wedding was the culmination of a romance that goes back several years between the couple. In fact, the two are believed to have first started dating when they were both students at Linden High School in Linden, California.

Their romance blossomed when the couple embarked on a college trip together. They both attended Fresno State University in Fresno, California, where Judge was a star baseball and football player, while Samantha majored in kinesiology.

Bracksieck was with Judge’s adoptive parents, Patty and Wayne, when the star hit his 62nd home run at Globe Life Park in early October.

The couple are both devout Christians and are not shy about sharing their faith through various social media. They are also heavily involved in various charitable causes throughout the New York City area and beyond.

MVP or not, Aaron Judge has secured his place in history

Aaron Judge often talks about his devotion to Bracksieck and how she is one of his biggest supporters. Judge is likely to win the MVP award this season, but even if he doesn’t, he has truly won the hearts and minds of millions of fans.
