Noah Syndergaard’s girlfriend Samantha Van Veen doesn’t have to be concerned that her Mets’ boyfriend is not likely to reach the big leagues until later this season. As the 11th top prospect in all of baseball, the minor league pitcher is giving New York fans a reason to pay attention this spring.
On September 1 2010, the tiny blonde from Mansfield Texas posted on Facebook that she was in a relationship with Noah Syndergaard. And since then, Samantha Van Veen has been Noah Syndergaard’s biggest fan. The Texas A&M senior proved herself from her dude’s first spring outing, when she was glued to Twitter waiting to see the results. “When the game isn’t televised= twitter stalking to the max to get updates,” tweeted Samantha Van Veen.
Aside from her boyfriend, Samantha Van Veen loves her dog Miley. She apparently enjoys guns, an occasional keg stand and the Aggies. Samantha Van Veen is also involved in an on-campus student organization. As the Secretary for the Agricultural Economics Society at A&M, Samantha Van Veen is part of an organization that is the representative of the national Agriculture & Applied Economics Association (AAEA).
But this spring, Samantha Van Veen will likely be paying more attention to her man’s playing instead of school. Although the Mets have indicated the front-runners for their positions will be veterans, they have a history of bringing up heralded prospects a few months into the season. This was true of both Harvey and Wheeler. With Noah Syndergaard’s high-octane fastball and “hook-from-hell” it seems apparent he is on the same track to success. Alongside Samantha Van Venn, we here at PlayerWives will surely be watching and waiting to see.
