The New York Yankees stars were on hand at the finish line on Sunday to cheer on Samantha Bracksieck and Emily Vakos
The New York Yankees stars were on hand at the finish line of the New York Marathon on Sunday to cheer on their wives Samantha Bracksieck and Emily Vakos — and they made sure to celebrate in style afterwards.
In photos taken at the finish in Central Park, Judge, 31, could be seen waiting for his wife of nearly two years to complete the race, while Rizzo, 34, was also there, and rewarded Vakos with a big hug.
According to Runner’s World, both women posted impressive times, with Bracksieck — who also ran the race last year — finishing in 3 hours 31 minutes and 44 seconds, and Vakos crossing the line in 3 hours 47 minutes and 54 seconds.
Vakos, who laced up for the Anthony Rizzo Family Foundation, told the New York Post that her fellow WAG was also quite supportive leading up to the race.
“I have gone to her throughout this entire process and asked her a gazillion questions about what the day [of] looks like, what I should be wearing, what headphones, what her training looks like,” Vakos told the newspaper about Bracksieck. “We’ve ran together as well, and she’s really been a support system for me and given me a lot of good experience advice.”

Vakos seemingly didn’t need a memo on how to celebrate post-race, however.
In footage from a party afterwards, her first baseman husband could be seen guest DJing at an Upper East Side rooftop celebration thrown in her honor.
