Alejandro Kirk Girlfriend Sofia Castaneda Comes From Baseball Background
Castaneda connection with baseball dates back to her childhood. She is the daughter of the legendary Mexican baseball player and manager Rafael Castaneda.
The former baseball player played 19 seasons in the Mexican Baseball League and shined with his baseball bat in seven franchises.
Fondly known as "Chivigon" by baseball fans in Mexico and around the globe, after hanging up his clits, Rafael decided to move towards management. Before he passed away on June 23, 2020, at 52 years of age, he was one of the Tijuana Bulls' assisting managers.
On her Instagram handle, Sofia posted a tribute to her later father, with many of her well-wishers and fans of the late baseballer flooding the comment section with tributes and messages of condolence.
One of Sofia's siblings, Rafael Jr, has followed in the footsteps of his father and has signed a professional contract with the MLB team Florida Marlins and plays for Tijuana Bulls. But in the past, even Sofia had tried her hand at baseball.
The daughter of the legendary baseball player is a former softball player, having played the majority of her career in Mexico. On her Instagram handle, Sofia has kept her softball career as a highlight, and in 2018 she even won a cup championship with her Gaviotas team.
One of the Twitter videos shared by Rafael in 2018 shows the former baseball player training his daughter. Rafael captioned the video, "Working with my princess" as he threw the baseball at Sofia as she practiced her swing. Sofia later reshared the tweet on her Twitter handle, stating she missed training with her dad.
Since 2019, Sofia has also tried her hands at modeling with the Mexican beauty, previously having endorsed swimwear brand Maranda Swimwear. Nowadays, Sofia is mostly seen at the Rogers Center cheering for Alejandro, and next season, Sofia will bring a cheering partner to the Center.
Alejandro does not have a wife as he and Sofia are not yet married.
