Over the last few years, Aaron Judge has risen quickly to become one of the biggest superstars in baseball. And there was one person outside of his family who was there from the beginning. That is Aaron Judge’s girlfriend, Samantha Bracksieck.
The two have a history, but how far do they go back? How did Samantha meet and date one of the biggest stars in baseball?
This is a deep dive into Samantha Bracksieck.
Background of Aaron Judge’s Girlfriend
Samantha was born on August 12, 1993, in San Joaquin, California. She is currently 28 years old and supposedly met Aaron Judge back in high school.
She stands at 5’2 with brown eyes and blonde hair with a 34C bra size (yes, this information has made it out to the public).
The two both went to Linden High School in Linden, California. Then, the two went to college together, both attending California State University, Fresno.
So, Samantha and Aaron have known each other for around 10 years.
Most consider them high school sweethearts, and there is definitely evidence to support that. However, rumor has it that the two broke off for a period of time around 2016.
Interestingly enough, this would be before Judge really made his namesake playing his first full season in the MLB in 2017. However, the two supposedly reconnected sometime around 2019, photographed together during a trip to London.
There is not much information from public sources such as a Samantha Bracksieck IG account, as she seems to keep most of her life away from the public eye. That is, at least besides major public incidents like her DUI.
Samantha does have one notable public incident that she probably wishes she could take back. This took place on February 25, 2020, in Scottsdale, Arizona. Ironically, it was while Judge and the Yankees were in Spring Training, getting ready for a 2020 season that would take much longer than they would have expected to actually begin because of the pandemic.
Bracksieck was pulled over by a local police officer in Scottsdale originally because her headlights were not on, and she was going 10 miles per hour over the speed limit. However, once the officer approached the vehicle, it became clear that Bracksieck was extremely intoxicated and was placed under arrest for an extreme DUI.
An extreme DUI is when you have a BAC level between .15 and .19. For reference, the legal limit to be considered under the influence is .08, so an extreme level is basically double the legal limit.
In Arizona, the penalty for a DUI is rather strict. You can face up to 30 days in jail for an extreme DUI. However, Bracksieck luckily did not have to face this for her incident.
After pleading guilty and cutting a deal with the prosecutors, her lawyer was able to get her sentence down to 10 days in jail. If that sounds good, it gets even better. Of the 10 days in jail, one was already credited when that sentence was given, and the other nine days were suspended days in jail.
So, in other words, Bracksieck was able to avoid spending any real time in jail besides the night she got arrested.
But, during that night, she had some interesting words according to the body dashcam. She asked the arresting officer, “Do you know who my boyfriend is?”
Being Aaron Judge’s Girlfriend
It appears that the Yankees star and his girlfriend reconciled around 2019 and are now happily together. In fact, Judge even put Bracksieck in his profile picture on his Instagram.
The two have been spotted together numerous times. But, considering that they have known each other for the better part of a decade, a pop of the question has certainly been speculated.
Rumor has it that the two may be secretly engaged. Bracksieck was in attendance at one of Judge’s games with a big ring on her hand. That has led some to believe that Judge has popped the question.
If this is true, it could only be a matter of time until they get married. Apparently, even Judge’s teammate Clint Frazier has teased the fact that they are engaged.
As stated above, the rumor is that Bracksieck and the Yankees outfielder are engaged. But, what will happen next between the two?
By herself, Samantha could have a net worth of anywhere between $300-500K. As for Judge, he is probably making a good amount of money off of endorsements.
On the field, he has not gotten the rich contracts that other superstars like Francisco Lindor, Fernando Tatis, or even his own teammate Giancarlo Stanton have gotten. At the same time, Judge is not poor.
The Aaron Judge contract currently sits at 1 year, $10.1 million. He made $8.5 million last year and has made about $22 million total on the field in his career.
Judge has one more arbitration year after this where he is likely to earn close to what he is this year. Then, he will likely get a nine-figure contract lasting for 5-6 years, barring any serious injuries or significant dropoff.
What does this mean for Bracksieck? Who knows. There is certainly enough there to live comfortably for the rest of their lives. But, if the two are engaged, they could be planning to wed near the time Judge gets the biggest payday of his career.
