Soon after Nestor showcased his remarkable pitching in a scoreless 6th inning in the all-Star game of 2022 which was being held at the Dodger Stadium.
Cortes continued the enthusiasm by proposing to Alondra G. Esteras Russy, his girlfriend soon after his midsummer classic.

“All-Star week made 2 of my dreams come true,” Cortes wrote. “Pitch in an all-star game. And propose to my best friend. With my parents along my side. I had to make us official.”
“Through ups and downs, we managed to keep each other happy. I thank you for being by my side for every struggle I’ve had but also for all the success. I hope there is more to come for both of us. I love you very much !” Cortes further expressed his feelings.
Soon after Nestor broke the news on his social media, Russy also flaunted her picture with the ring on her Instagram and expressed her approval by saying “And… Of course, i said YES!”
Alondra added heartwarming pictures of the proposal which were adorned by her fans. Cortes got down on a knee at the Los Angles County Museum of Art Installation which goes by the name “Urban Light.”
The Los Angeles County Museum of Art seems to be the perfect setting for the proposal, considering the painting her thew at the All-Star Game, which was just a few hours before he popped the question.

The MLB players have been constantly on Alondra’s social media and the two indeed love to flaunt their love with their followers.

Magical Moments both On and Off the Field.
Cortes is not lucky in his love life but also has an impressive professional record. In this year’s New York rotation Cortes has been impressive. He posted a record of 7-3, 2.6 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 99 strikeouts in 95.2 innings across 17 starts.
With the proposal after a week-long record-breaking Cortes seems to have the best moments of his life both on and off the field. Nestor was one of the six players who represented the Yankees at the All-Star Game.
Nestor, the left-hander will now aim to add another ring apart from his engagement ring to his life, with a World Series victory for the first time since 2009.
