It’s no secret that the players in the MLB date only the most gorgeous of women. But just how gorgeous, we had no idea. Here are the girlfriends, fiances, and wives of some of the most legendary major league baseball players on the field. These guys might hit home runs out on the baseball diamond, but there’s no question that they hit a grand slam when it comes to the women they love. Here are the absolute hottest wives of the MLB.
Probably the most famous Baseball girlfriend is Jennifer Lopez herself, who is more famous than her partner, the one and only A-Rod, from the Yankees. J-Lo has been married three times in the past and has two kids, so she probably isn’t looking to rush becoming Mrs anyone any time soon, but with A-Rod being one of the heroes of MLB, she has snagged herself a partner almost as famous as she is. They are both used to the red carpet life, that’s for sure.
Larisa Fraser is the wife of Milwaukee Brewers left fielder, namely Mr Ryan Braun, and her own job sees her modelling for brands like Nordstrom, GQ and Michael Kors. She is quite the family woman now, busy cooking up a storm and posting it on her website ModelEatsBlog.com, as well as looking after their two kids, Celine and Greyson. She has stood by Ryan through a few scandals, including cheating and steroid rumors.
Tiffany Price is married to the pitcher from the Boston Red Sox, and she and David are about to have a kid together, too! They have only been married since November, so are proper newlyweds, and look every inch the part! Before she got married, she made her man proud by telling sportscaster Dan Patrick that she was hoping for a World Series Ring over a Diamond engagement ring! She certainly talks the talk!
Allie LaForce knows her sports, as she is actually a journalist and reporter with CBS Sports, known for covering both football and basketball. But it was a Baseball hero who won her heart, after a long courting period while LaForce insisted she did not want to date an athlete! The games began when Allie asked Joe Smith to an On-Air game of HORSE, and he was happy to agree, and pursue her until she agreed to become his wife!
While Mark Teixeira might be retired, any New York Yankees fan will remember his days as their first baseman, from 2009 all the way until 2016. Throughout that time, he was already married to his college sweetheart, Leigh Williams, who he met at Georgia Tech, and who he claims he knew he would marry the moment he set his eyes on her, a true story of love at first sight. They now have three kids, and are totally adorable together.
You might be able to guess from her surname, that Jennifer is married to Chase Utley from the LA Dodgers. They have been married for a decade, and have two kids together, as well as a pitbull called Jack! They are huge animal lovers and Chase even appeared in an advertisement for PETA, encouraging people looking to get a pet to head down to the animal shelter and get a rescue pup instead of buying one from the pet store.
Another story of gorgeous high school sweethearts, LA Dodgers starting Pitcher and star Brandon McCarthy is married to Amanda, but the road to true love wasn’t so smooth! In fact, they broke up after high school, and took until 2007 to find their way back to each other, long after they finished college. They are now happily married since 2010, with one daughter, Cassidy. An amazing story of love helping them find their way back to one another.
Windy has a long illustrious career behind her as a pageant winner, and she was previously in the finals of the Miss Puerto Rico competitions. The couple have two kids together, both daughters, named Briana and Suil Angelina. While Angel Pagan is not signed with anyone right now, this was apparently because no one gave him an offer that he couldn’t refuse, and he would prefer to spend more time with his family. Aw.
If you went to Millville High School in New Jersey, you might remember this couple, who have been dating ever since they were in school! Now, a lot has changed, with Mike Trout being the outfielder for the LA Angels of Anaheim, but Jessica Cox is still standing by his side. They are still young, with Mike only 25 years old, so that probably explains why they haven’t tied the knot quite yet, but they are well on the way to being a power couple of MLB.
Who goes on blind dates anymore? Well, clearly some people, as that’s how Matt Holliday from the New York Yankees met his wife Leslee! The pair were set up in 1999, and got married just a year later in the new millennium. Since then they have had four children together, three boys and a girl. While Matt is known now as the first baseman for the Yankees, Cardinals fans will remember he played for St Louis before that.
When Barry was in the game, he played for both the San Francisco Giants and the Oakland Athletics. He has since retired from the game, partly to be able to spend more time with his gorgeous wife Amber who he married in 2011, and their son, who is 3 years old. He’s also a fan of finding time for the things he loves, from yoga to surfing the waves. Sounds like a great way to relax and find ‘you time’ so we can’t argue with that!
Nick Swisher has had a great career, first with the Cleveland Indians and then with the Atlanta Braves too. But since 2015, he’s been unsigned, and is happily spending time with his family instead. But who is his family? He married Joanna Garcia back in 2010, and you’ll recognize her from her famous acting roles in Once Upon a Time and Reba. Since then, they have had a couple of kids together, and are a true celeb power couple.
Another example of celebrity meeting celebrity, Lindsay Clubine is a television host and a model, who you might recognize from Deal or No Deal. She has been with Philadelphia Phillies star Clay Buchholz since 2008, and they got married only months later. They have one daughter, Colbi Dawn. Buchholz moved over to the Phillies after years with the Boston Red Sox, achieving All-Star status an impressive two times.
In 2009, Dallas met Mat Latos, and the rest is history. Ok, we’ll give you some more gossip! In fact, Dallas’s roommate was dating one of Mat’s friends and team members, and introduced the two. They got engaged and married within three months, and then finished off their family by buying themselves a cat, who they cleverly and originally named… Cat! You might have seen them taking part in the NOH8 Campaign, back in 2013.
Detroit Tigers fans will recognize Anibal Sanchez, the starting pitcher immediately. He’s been with the team for more than 5 years, since 2012. Before that, he was playing with the Marlins out of Miami. Ana is Anibals second wife, and they have two children together, Anabella and Alan since they got married in 2011. Tragically, Anibal lost a three month old son with his first wife, which likely led to the breakdown of their relationship.
Manny Ramirez is retired, but he is enough of a legend that we will keep him in this list from his time with the Kochi Fighting Dogs. They met at the gym, which people do say is a great place to find a romantic partner, but Juliana was actually working there! They have been married since 2002, and have two sons, as well as raising Manny’s son from a past relationship. He wasn’t always with a foreign team, he used to play for the Cleveland Indians.
One of the most memorable proposals of the MLB, Andrew McCutchen from the Pittsburgh Pirates proposed to his wife Maria live on the Ellen DeGeneres Show! Believe it or not considering the public nature of their engagement announcement, they actually like to live quite a quiet life, with Andrew working hard with the Pirates since the year 2009. He’s been rewarded for his efforts, and is a five time All-Star as well as an NL MVP.
A musician and a Baseball player, what a fun combination! Juliana plays Christian music, and she is known for merging pop and electronic music to make her own unique brand. They are both religious Christians, living in the town of Franklin in Tennessee, with three children together. Ben believes that his success with the Chicago Cubs is down to his relationship with God, and before the Cubs he was with the Kansas City Royals.
Michelle Damon doesn’t spend too much time with the other wives and girlfriends of the MLB community, preferring to live the quiet life. Although how quiet can it possibly be when the couple have six kids together since they got married in 2004! Not only that, but Johnny Damon was married once before, and had twins with his first wife. That’s eight kids under one roof, remind me not to pop by! At least Johnny is retired so he’s around to be hands on.
Justin Verlander is known for being the pitcher of the Detroit Tigers, and he is engaged to 2017 Sports Illustrated cover girl, Kate Upton. They have recently bought themselves a $5.25 million home in Beverly Hills, and adopted a dog called Harley. Verlander recently shared his pre-game rule, “There’s no sex before a game,” Upton told the press. “Absolutely none. And then, also what I just found out is, if he plays too well, there’s no sex after, either.”
If you love those Toronto Blue Jays, then Troy Tulowitzki needs no introduction. But you might not know his wife, who he has been in a relationship with since the pair were in high school together! They got married in California in 2009, and they have one son who’s name is Taz! He is 3 years old. Troy plays for the Blue Jays as a shortstop, but he is better known for his time with the Colorado Rockies, where he was named All-Star 5 times.
Another MLB wife who is a reporter, Michelle works for KSBW TV in California, reporting on Sports, of course! Both halves of this gorgeous couple come from California originally, and they have been married since 2011. Dan Runzler is from the Pittsburgh Pirates, although he was also with the San Francisco Giants for some time before that. Michelle is an athlete herself, as she used to play College tennis.
Remember when Matt Treanor was a golden boy with the Los Angeles Dodger, playing as a catcher? Although he’s retired, he has plenty to keep him busy, with his wife Misty May and their daughter Malia Barbara who is only three years old. The couple met at sports rehab, where they were both working on sports injuries, as Misty herself played sports professionally, but not Baseball, Beach Volleyball! She even won three Olympic gold medals.
The Washington Nationals are loving the Harper family, as both Bryce and his brother Bryan are part of the organization. Bryce and Kayla have been together since 2012, and married since 2016, despite calling off the wedding once beforehand in 2015. Everyone is entitled to cold feet, but we’re glad they made it down the aisle eventually. Harper is a traditional Mormon, and the family are religious. No kids yet, but watch this space we’re sure!
Zack Grienke’s wife used to be a cheerleader for the Dallas Cowboys, as well as being crowned Miss Daytona Beach once upon a time. The couple have been together since their high school days back in 2001, and got married in 2009. They also have a son, named Bode, what a cute name! Zack plays with the Arizona Diamondbacks as their starting pitcher, although Dodgers fans may remember he used to be with the Los Angeles team.
The New York Mets are proud to have David Wright on their team as third baseman, and David Wright is proud to be married to Molly Beers! They tied the knot in 2013, and have a daughter named Olivia who is not quite two years old. Not content to just be an awesome Baseball player, David is also quite the businessman, holding shares in Vitamin Water which got sold for $20 million when it was sold to Coca Cola. Nice!
Celeb meets celeb here, as Stephanie LaGrossa was known for the reality television program Survivor, long before she became Mrs Kyle Kendrick! The couple met in a bar, what a cliché, but I suppose it’s a cliché for a reason! It took just two years until the happy pair made it official with a gorgeous wedding in Napa on the west coast. Just a year later two became three, when their daughter Sophia was born, and just two more before they welcomed a son, too!
Lots of people meet the loves of their lives in College, and this story is not all that different. Boy meets girl when they are Freshmen, and nine years later, he pops the question! In this case though, the boy is the talented Jered Weaver of the San Diego Padres, who is also known for his ten years with the LA Angels of Anaheim. Since their beautiful wedding in 2011, they have had two kids, one son and one daughter.
If you know the Texas Rangers, you’ll recognize Cole Hamels, and if you like reality TV, you’ll know Heidi, too! She was on the hit show, Survivor: The Amazon. When Heidi was asked to throw the ceremonial first pitch at one of his games way back in 2004, the two of them had an instant connection, and got married two years later in 2006. They have three children together, including their daughter Reeve who was adopted from Ethiopia.
Mitch is a newcomer to the Boston Red Sox, being chosen as the first baseman earlier this year. He has known Susannah Moreland since they were kids though, and they met on vacation! Talk about a Holiday Romance. Believe it or not, they lost touch after the vacation, and reconnected when they met again in 2009. Figuring they had wasted enough time, just 10 months later, they had decided to spend the rest of their lives together!
Cheerleaders and Baseball players, the perfect combination! Krystle was cheering for the Philadelphia Eagles, when she was introduced to Ryan Howard who was their baseman. They dated for two years before making it official in 2012, in a popular ideal wedding destination, a beach in Hawaii. Howard played with the Eagles for 12 years, but he’s moved into the business world more recently, working as a Venture Capitalist.
The Houston Astros have their talented second baseman by the name of Jose Altuve, and his gorgeous wife, is Gianina Elizabeth Cimetta Sandoval, more commonly just called Nina! The couple are both Venezuelan, and Nina has a degree in Bio analytics. The couple have been together since they were teenagers, and now have a young daughter as well, Melanie. Having a daughter has softened him, as he said “when I’m on the field I just think about playing baseball, but then when I go home I just think about her and talking to her and what can I do to help her.”
The LA Dodgers just wouldn’t be the same without their second baseman, Logan Forsythe. And Logan wouldn’t be the same without his wife ALly and their son Trace! Ally also has sports in her blood, and when the two met they were in college, with Ally receiving her scholarship to play Soccer, but didn’t start dating until 2014. They now have one son, and Ally clearly adores them both, tweeting on the day of the World series and her little ones birthday, “beyond grateful and so proud of my little man and my main man! love you both beyond words!”
Laura is married to Aaron Boone, best known for playing with the Yankees as well as the Houston Astros. One of the most solid MLB partnerships, the couple have been together more than 15 years as husband and wife. Throughout that time they have 4 children together, two biologically, and two who they have adopted. Laura is no stranger to the limelight, as she is a playboy bunny! Incredibly, she got her first shoot on Playboy without any modelling experience, or even a portfolio of photos, just by walking in!
Recently married to Alex Wood from the LA Dodgers, this adorable couple have been together since 2013, and love to share on Instagram how loved up they are! The hopeless romantic Wood proposed to his blushing bride to be on a sunset cruise to a gorgeous private beach in St Barths. It’s not all grand romantic gestures with these two however, as they actually met in the most down to earth place you can imagine… a pizza joint!
While Joe Giradi is retired from the New York Yankees, he holds a legacy that not many people can beat, and was also the manager from 2007 until 2017. He’s recently retired, presumably to spend more time with his gorgeous wife Kimberly, who he has been with since 1990, an incredible 27 year long marriage, and counting. They met in college, and have three children together, and tragically suffered one miscarriage, too. Innocenzi is very private, and uses her religion and faith to get through hard times.
In 2011, Los Angeles Dodgers player Charlie Culberson married his girlfriend Sarah O’Rourke, and she became Sarah Culberson! The couple have three adorable children, Collins who is 5, Ace who is 2, and a baby Everly Louise, who isn’t even quite a year! Life must be super busy for this family. While she might look like a model, Sarah is actually a registered nurse, graduating from school in Georgia, although she doesn’t currently practise.
In January 2010, Jaime Edomndson was chosen to be the Playboy Playmate of the Month, but believe it or not, modelling was not her first career move. She was actually a police officer, just like both of her parents. She was also a Dolphins cheerleader, and she is married to Evan Longoria, from the Tampa Bay Rays, where she now cheers. They have two kids together, a daughter Elle, and a son, Nash. She tweeted recently, “I have a really hot husband… just saying.” No bragging, Jaime.
Derek Jeter is known to anyone who has even the slightest interest in Major League Baseball, as he played an amazing twenty seasons with the New York Yankees, winning the World Series five times! These are quite some stats to retire on. His retirement seems to be going well, as he married Hannah Jeter in 2016 and they have a baby due this year as well. Sounds like a busy and fun retirement, lucky for some!
Kiana Kim, age 34, is the current girlfriend of the most notoriously hated player in Major League Baseball history, Pete Rose. Eventually, Pete messed around so much with the integrity of the game (by making bets for and against himself, even throwing the World Series for financial gain) that he was barred from playing in the major leagues for the rest of his career. Of course, in the love department he is doing just fine, as he is with a Playboy Bunny less than half his age.
Born and raised in Miami, FL, Manny Machado plays for the Baltimore Orioles as a third baseman and shortstop. In November of 2014, Manny Machado ended up marrying his longtime girlfriend, Yainee Alonso, who defected from Cuba with her family at a young age. Funnily enough, Yainee is the younger sister of Cleveland Indians player, Yonder Alonso.
The San Francisco Giants wouldn’t be the same without Buster Posey, who is both a catcher and a first baseman. They are the only team that he has ever played for, since his career started. There seems to be a running theme with commitment here, seeing as his wife Kristen Posey has been in his life since high school as well. They’ve been dating since they were kids, and married since 2009. They added to their family with twins in 2011.
As one of the most valuable Victoria Secret’s models in the world, it’s no surprise Adriana Lima has men falling at her feet. Once married to basketball player, Marko Jaric, she then moved onto football player Julian Edelman after her divorce. However, she then quickly turned her attention to MLB Mets star, Matt Harvey and the pair started dating. Unfortunately, the pair have since split, and Lima has been linked to Edelman once again. Will this Brazilian supermodel ever make up her mind?!
We love it when MLB stars marry their high school sweethearts, which is exactly the case with Emily Kuchar and Zack Greinke. The Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher sometimes suffers from severe anxiety in public, but his wife is always there to help him through. He once said of his wife, “You look in her eyes, and it just makes you feel good.” Now if that’s not the most adorable thing you’ve read all day then we don’t know what is!
While he is now a free agent in the MLB world, Reid Brignac is certainly not a free agent on the dating scene. The former Tampa Bay Rays shortstop has been dating the stunning Lauren Anderson since 2010, and the pair have two children together. Lauren Anderson is a Playboy model who was chosen as Playmate of the Month back in July 2002 and nabbed herself the cover of Playboy Spain back in March 2008. These two make an adorable couple!
Fans of The Amazing Race may recognize the former model, Kim DeJesus, from Season 23 of the series, where she was eliminated in the eighth leg. Kim married former MLB player, David DeJesus, and the pair have one son named Kingston together. In order to give back to the community, this beautiful couple set up The DeJesus Family Foundation to help families in crisis get access to basic human needs. It seems like these two are beautiful both inside and out.
Russell Martin is a Canadian MLB player, known for his time at the LA Dodgers, New York Yankees, Pittsburgh Pirates, and now the Toronto Blue Jays. While he likes to keep much of his private life private, he was linked to Marikym Hervieux back in 2009. Hervieux is a model and the sister of Valerie Gagne (another MLB star), along with also having a few small acting roles over the years. Unfortunately, the relationship wasn’t meant to be and they split the same year.
Brian Roberts must be counting his lucky stars after bagging the beautiful Diana Chiafair, who he made his wife back in 2009. The former second baseman played with the Baltimore Orioles for 12 years, before playing his final season with the New York Yankees in 2014. In 2013, Diana and Brian Roberts welcomed their first son into the world, who they named Jax Isaacs (aww). The pair look suitably loved up in all their photos as a family.
Ronny Cedeno is yet another MLB player who likes to keep his private life just that – private. However, we do know the Venezuelan shortstop managed to bag himself the perfect wife in the form of the model Aura Avila. Also hailing from Venezuela, the pair are thought to have been married since 2009, although there are rumors circulating that they may have got divorced since. Does that mean he is now a ‘free agent’ again? Excuse the pun.
The wife of Hunter Pence from the San Francisco Giants, Alexis Cozombolidis works at IGN, as a production co-ordinator. Unlike her sporty husband, her skills lie in the technical and nerdy! Hunter has won the World Series twice, and been named All-Star three times, too. The couple are pretty much newlyweds, getting engaged at the end of 2015, and then married a year later, November 26th 2016.
