According to the Boston Herald's Inside Track, Red Sox first baseman Kevin Youkilis and Patriots quarterback Tom Brady are about to become brothers-in-law. Youkilis is reportedly engaged to Julie Brady, one of the quarterback's three sisters.
The website says that Julie Brady is a teacher in California and will move to Florida to be with Youkilis. They spent time together in Indianapolis to watch the Super Bowl, which Tom Brady's Patriots lost to the New York Giants. It will be Julie Brady's first marriage.
According to ESPN, Youkilis took part in a marriage ceremony with Enza Sambataro in 2008, but the two never were legally married before separating. Sambataro reportedly dated Hollywood Red Sox fan Ben Affleck.
Youkilis has been known as a gritty, hard-working player and an excellent fielder in his eight-year career with the Red Sox.
The three-time All-Star batted .258 with 17 home runs and 80 RBIs in 2011.
