The husband of a former "Bachelor" star has been identified as the man who caught Aaron Judge's record-breaking 62nd home run ball in Texas on Tuesday night, and he's already turning down seven-figure offers for the memorabilia.
Multiple outlets claim that Cory Youmans, the millionaire Vice President of Fisher Investments, caught the ball and now holds it. Those reports seemed to be confirmed by Bachelor Nation alum Bri Amaranthus, who is Cory's wife.
Bri, who appeared on Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s "Bachelor" season in 2018, posted a photo of the ball on her Instagram.
"That's my man @thejudge44 #62.' ," she captioned the photo. On Twitter, she shared a video of Cory holding the ball while being escorted by stadium security.
"THIS IS MY HUSBAND," she wrote alongside the video.
Make no mistake about it, the ball that Cory caught is historic. With the homer, Judge set the single-season American League home run record, having passed Roger Maris' previous home run total of 61, which stood for 61 years. Many baseball purists now consider Judge the legitimate home run king, as they discount the three other players who have hit more in a season due to the steroid era in which they played.
Prior to Bri's husband catching the ball at Globe Life Field, memorabilia companies said the record-setting ball would be worth millions. Front Row Sports said Cory already turned down a $2 million offer.
After catching the ball, a reporter asked Cory what he planned to do with the ball. He replied, "Good question. I haven't thought about it."
Cory and Bri, a Dallas sports reporter, married in Mexico in 2021 after a year-long engagement.
