Tom Brady is enjoying the retired life. The seven-time Super Bowl champion and part-owner of the Las Vegas Aces recently supported his niece Maya Brady at the UCLA softball game against Arizona State on April 21.

On April 17, Maya was named the Pac-12 Player of the Week. She received the honor after homering in all three games with seven RBIs against the University of Arizona. The Bruins swept the series over the Wildcats. Maya eventually homered in four-straight games, the first UCLA softball player to do so since 2013.
Through 45 starts, Maya has hit 15 home runs this season, good enough for 10th in the nation.

Maya is Maureen Brady’s daughter, the older sister of Tom and former All-American pitcher at Fresno State.
“I love him and he’s like a father figure to me,” Maya said in an interview on SiriusXM. “I’m very honored that I have his last name, and I have the family that I have. It’s something that I had to grow into, and it’s a huge blessing for me.”

After purchasing the Aces, Tom said he’s always been a supporter of women’s sports.
“My love for women’s sports began at a young age when I would tag along to all my older sisters’ games — they were by far the best athletes in our house! We celebrated their accomplishments together as a family, and they remain a great inspiration to me,” Tom said.
