Aaron Judge and the Yankees suffered a crushing 9-8 loss to the White Sox at the Field of Dreams Thursday, but his fiancée popped champagne.
Samantha Bracksieck celebrated her 28th birthday with her Yankee wives and girlfriends as she was on the road with the team. Bracksieck and Co. sipped champagne on a bus that included balloons and gifts for the birthday girl, who wore a blue Yankees cap.
In a video, obtained by Awesemo.com and posted by one of Bracksieck’s friends, she pops a bottle of champagne and laughs when she sees it overflowing.
It’s unclear where the crew was headed, or if Judge had anything special planned for his fiancée on Friday – a day off for the Yankees before continuing the White Sox series in Chicago. The Field of Dreams game was played in Dyersville, Iowa.The judge and Bracksieck are very private about their relationship, however, their engagement was reported in June when she was pictured wearing a diamond ring.
It’s unclear when the longtime couple first started dating, but they are believed to have been friends since high school.
