Married Yankees star Brett Gardner seeks a restraining order against a crazy fan who calls himself the “future wife” of the baseball player and claims that he sends her sexual “signals” off the field.
A lawyer for Gardner, 36, filed a protection order against Gina Devasahayam at the Bronx Civil Court last week, according to NJ.com.
The outlet said the Yankees are banning Devasahayam from all MLB stadiums in an effort to keep her away from the all-star player and his family.
The team reportedly instructed security officers at George M. Steinbrenner Field in Tampa, Florida, not to let Devasahayam pass through the gates while players, including Gardner, sign up for spring training here.

Devasahayam has never met Gardner, who has been married to his wife Jessica Clendenin since 2007 (together in September above). The couple have two sons together
Devasahayam, who says she is the founder of an anti-aging biotechnology company, sued Gardner, the Yankees and the MLB last year after being kicked out of Yankee Stadium during a play-off game in October.
“I request the court to grant me access to the stadium in accordance with MLB fan policy and also in accordance with” Significant other “from MLB player Brett Gardner,” Devasahayam wrote in the lawsuit.
“I am a Yankees fan and also the future wife of Brett Gardner.”
The October incident came after Devasahayam tried to sneak into the visitor clubhouse in Oriole Park in Baltimore to see Gardner before he was launched by security in August.
Devasahayam has never met Gardner, a married father of two, but in her lawsuit she claimed that the star-outfielder has clearly shown interest in her.
She said she started going to games after “three years of online romancing” because “I see that Brett wants this.”
She also said that she has a video of Gardner in the dugout in which he “moves his hip up the stairs as if he has sexual intercourse with me” and that the player makes “a sad face” if she doesn’t spell home.

Devasahayam’s Twitter account is chock full of references to Gardner, including one on Valentine’s Day when she wrote, “Happy Valentine’s Day mi amor Gardy @Yankees.”
In December she tweeted: “Congratulations Gardy on your renewed deal with @Yankees, I look forward to seeing you soon!”
After filing her lawsuit in October she tweeted: “I’ve never seen you angry with me Gardy, I will claim that you play the role of my husband, that is my first right, my second right is to put me in the stadium to allow.’
Devasahayam discussed her dispute with the Yankees in an interview with NJ.com, claiming that the competition portrayed her unfairly as a “disturbed stray woman” who poses a “threat to order and security.”
When a reporter reminded her that Gardner is married to Jessica Clendenin, Devasahayam replied, “That doesn’t matter.”
She insisted that Gardner want her close, despite the ongoing protection order and the Yankees’ efforts to ban her from stadiums.
“You know, when he plays, he gives signals,” she said.
‘They have their own signals, first and foremost for the pitch type and such. … And then there is something called romantic and sexual signaling after me.
“That is how our relationship has evolved because he started to send sexual signals to me.”
The Yankees have tried to reject Devasahayam’s trial.
Representatives of the team and Gardner did not return a request for comment.
