Two World Series rings are nice, but nothing beats a wedding band. Just ask Kevin Youkilis, who got married yesterday in Mexico. Engaged for more than a year, the Sox first baseman and his fiancee, Enza Sambataro, finally made it official in front of 120 family members and friends on a beach in Cabo San Lucas, where the couple will also honeymoon. We’re told the guest list included a couple of Youk’s teammates – Mike Lowell, Big Papi, and Dustin Pedroia, among others – and a few VIP friends such as sitcom star Mike O’Malley and one of the Wahlberg boys. Enza, who briefly dated Ben Affleck back in the day, wore Vera Wang. (Youk favors sweatpants, but we trust he cleaned up for this occasion.) It’s Enza’s second marriage and the first for Youkilis, who’ll turn 30 in March.

A Newton native and former BC student, Sambataro is the CEO of Youk’s charity Hits for Kids, which raised $1 million last year for children’s charities and medical research programs in New England and Cincinnati. The couple will spend the offseason in Arizona, where Youkilis is again working out at the Athletes Performance Institute. Before then, the bride and groom will host a “Family Feud”-like fund-raiser Nov. 29 at Mohegan Sun. Mazel tov.
