The Yankees-Red Sox rivalry stretches beyond the players and teams.
On Tuesday night, the WAGs from New York and Boston will be supporting their partners at the wild-card game at Fenway Park.
The WAGs never fail to step out in style, and the start of the 2021 MLB Playoffs will be no exception. However, only one team will unite with the wives and girlfriends for a victory celebration after Game 1.
Yankees slugger Aaron Judge and fiance Samantha Bracksieck are very private about their relationship. Their engagement was reported in June, when she was photographed wearing a diamond ring. It’s unclear when the longtime couple began dating, but they’re believed to have been friends since high school.
All eyes will be on Yankees pitcher Gerrit Cole, who will take the mound on Tuesday night. He and his and wife Amy Crawford welcomed their first child together in July 2020 — a son named Caden. The couple announced Amy was expecting in January of that same year, soon after Cole signed a monumental nine-year, $324 million contract with the Yankees.
Gleyber Torres and Elizabeth Rodriguez are expecting a baby boy together. The Yankees shortstop and his wife threw a gender reveal party in September, where Torres’ teammates, Judge and Corey Kluber, were present with their significant others. The expectant couple also celebrated their four-year wedding anniversary in April after tying the knot in 2017.
