Listen to a 2013 Red Sox fan long enough, and you’re sure to get into a heated discussion over the best baseball players of all time; and in their mind, the discussion is pretty much down to Ted Williams, Willie Mays, Mickey Mantle and Jackie Bradley Jr. The Red Sox prospect (who most expected to be another year away from making the show) managed to grab a 2013 starting spot and has raised expectations and hopes across New England for a fanbase pretty down on their team’s chances.
Before JBJ became a widely known acronym in New England, there was one person to know all about him – Jackie Bradley Jr.’s girlfriend Erin Helring. Bradley and Helring are both from Virginia laying claim to hometowns about 15 miles apart. While Jackie starred in the College World Series for South Carolina, Helring was going to Liberty University where she got a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology.
We hate to disappoint the majority of single girls in Boston, but this is more than just a passing girlfriend. While it’s not exactly clear how long the couple has been together, Bradley popped the question over New Year’s and the couple is now engaged. No wedding date has been announced
