While the New York Yankees front office still doesn’t know what to do with Aaron Judge, who is now officially a free agent and can sign with whomever he wants, the Bronx Bombers’ famed No. 99 ballplayer is taking it easy.
Today the NYC Marathon was run by Judge’s wife Samantha Bracksieck, and Aaron was supporting her all the way through the 26.2-mile course.
Judge was accompanied by Stanton
One of Judge’s friends on the Yankees roster is Giancarlo Stanton, who joined him today to support Samantha. When she crossed the finish line, Judge approached her to hug her and congratulate her on her accomplishment.
Samantha and Aaron have known each other since high school, as they both attended Linden High School in California. They went on to study at Fresno State University, so it’s a romance of years.
Officially, they started hanging out as a couple in 2014, and on December last year they got married in Maui, Hawaii.
Judge’s future, in limbo
Having not yet reached an agreement to remain with the Yankees, Judge is awaiting offers from other teams, among which the New York Mets, San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers have come to sound.
On the Yankees’ side, Yankees GM Brian Cashman said last Friday: “We would love to be able to bring Aaron Judge back. The career path he’s currently on is Hall-of-Fame like. [There would be] nothing better than to have him continue to man right field for us and impact us both on and off the field the way he has thus far.”
