The wives and girlfriends of Major League Baseball stars are an interesting topic these days. We compiled an updated list of the loveliest ladies of the MLB. The players on this list are a combination of current players who are with teams like the New York Yankees, the San Francisco Giants, the Chicago Cubs, the San Diego Padres, or the Boston Red Sox, while others are retired or free agents. Many of these players have jumped from team to team depending on their contracts but all of them are extremely talented and good at what they do.
The women on this list, the wives and girlfriends, are no strangers to success and limelight themselves. Some of the women have been on television in reality shows while there are a few ladies on here who are arguably more famous than their significant other (Hannah Jeter and Jennifer Lopez, anyone?). We are divulging the stories of how these couples met, married, had children and built their life together. It is a great thing to see a couple withstand the test of time and constant shifting in location and social circles. We have couples here who have been together for over 20 years, while we also have those who recently got married and are only starting their path together.
At the end of the day, every incredible MLB player needs someone good by his side, just like all of us out there. The women here have done as such and so much more. Men like Hunter Pence, Manny Ramirez, Brandon McCarthy, and David Wright are only some of the lucky men to have ended up with true champions of their very own in the wives they have chosen to be with for life.
