After hitting a huge homer in the Field of Dreams game between the New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox, people wanted to know more about Aaron Judge’s parents and girlfriend.

The Field of Dreams game between the New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox took place in Dyersville, Iowa, recently.

The game paid homage to the 1989 classic film Field Of Dreams starring Kevin Costner, who also lead the players on to the pitch in the recent game.

The White Sox beat the Yankees 9-8 following a walk-off home run in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Before that, though, Yankees star Aaron Judge hit a three-run homer well over the right-field wall in the third inning. That put the Yankees up, 3-1

Who are Aaron Judge’s parents?

The Yankees slugger is one of the most recognisable faces in MLB today, in large part due to his huge frame (he stands at 6ft 7 in and weighs 282lb).

Judge has 25 homers and 59 RBI this season, but people are interested in his life away from the field.

Judge was adopted in 1992 (the day after he was born) by Wayne and Patty Judge, both PE teachers in Linden, California.

His case was a closed adoption, meaning he never had any contact with his biological parents.

Speaking about his parents, he said: “I have one set of parents, the ones that raised me. That’s how it is.”

When Judge, who is biracial, was told at age ten he was adopted, he admitted to having been confused that he “didn’t look like” his parents, but they were the only parents he knew, so he moved on in stride. “It was actually no big deal.”

The baseball star has a great relationship with his adopted family and credits them with a lot of his success: “My parents are amazing, they’ve taught me so many lessons. I honestly can’t thank them enough for what they’ve done for me.”

Who is his girlfriend?

Not too much is known about his life off the field or his girlfriend, Samantha Bracksieck.

The couple met at California State University in Fresno and are believed to have started dating in 2014.

The pair reportedly split in 2016 but reconciled in 2019. Since then, they have been going strong.

In fact, there were rumours Aaron Judge and his girlfriend were engaged.

It all started with a picture of Judge’s girlfriend wearing a ring on her finger at a game.

Neither Judge nor Bracksieck have confirmed nor denied the rumours.
