Cory Youmans – the fan who caught Aaron Judge’s 62nd home run, which is worth at least $2 million – is living his best life vacationing in Italy.
Youmans and his wife, Bri Amaranthus, are enjoying a lavish getaway on the Amalfi Coast, according to a variety of posts shared on their separate Instagram pages on Monday.
The couple, who married last June, shared photos and videos sailing the Mediterranean on a private yacht, cooking homemade pasta in Postiano and cruising through Capri sipping Italian beer.
Youmans and Amaranthus, a Dallas-based sports journalist and former “Bachelor” contestant, also attended another couple’s celebration at the Villa Cimbrone hotel in Ravello over the weekend.
Youmans appeared on social media after making headlines for catching one of the hottest commodities in MLB history – the 62nd Judge’s Ball. The Yankees slugger reached the historic milestone in a game against the Rangers in Texas on Oct. 4.
After catching the ball, Youmans, a Dallas native who serves as vice president of a local branch of Fisher Investments, said he wasn’t sure if he would return the historic memento to Judge.
It’s also unclear whether Youmans is still in possession of the ball, for which JP Cohen, president of Memory Lane Auctions in Tustin, Calif., said he would “immediately pay” $2 million.
Cohen told the Post that he tried to contact Youmans the day after he caught the ball — and his offer was still on the table.
Brandon Steiner, founder and CEO of CollectibleXchange and The Steiner Agency, told The Post that the 62nd Judge’s Ball is worth at least $2 million, and said it could be worth even more.
After Youmans caught the ball, he was escorted away by security and pressed with questions from reporters about what he intended to do with it.
“That’s a good question! I didn’t think of that!” Youmans said at the time.
