Ben Cherington’s wife is a Yankees fan

We neglected to mention in our item announcing the marriage of Sox general manager Ben Cherington that his bride is – gasp! – a Yankees fan. We’re told Tyler Tumminia, whom Cherington married last Friday at Brooklyn Borough Hall, regularly attends Yankees games, and often sits in GM Brian Cashman’s private box. Why? Because Tumminia’s boss, Marvin Goldklang, chairman of the Goldklang Group, is a minority owner of the Bronx Bombers. (He’s also the guy who helped Sox owner John Henry buy a 1 percent share of the Yankees in 1991.) Cherington and Tumminia are expecting their first child this summer, and it’ll be interesting to see which team the baby roots for. It may not be the Red Sox or Yankees. Tumminia’s father, John, is a scout for the White Sox.
