No matter your gender or sexual preference, one thing is almost always constant, the fact that we eventually become attracted to other individuals, some of who, we actually end up in some sort of relationship with. We have all had intimate relationships of varying degrees and length, and most of us can agree that maintaining a relationship can at times be truly difficult; especially if both parties involved do not see each other often due to work. Professional athletes fall into this category, regardless if they a part of the NBA, NHL, NFL, or MLB, because of the amount of time that they are absent from home due to their vigorous work and travel schedules.
The baseball season consists of 162 regular season games, which does not include exhibition and possible playoff games, which makes it the longest season in all of team sports. Based on how the season breaks down, players cumulatively spend around three full months away from their team’s home ballpark, and that much time away from your significant other can take a toll; but luckily, many baseball players manage to maintain their relationships. As is the case with most athletes, baseball players are lucky enough to not only make boatloads of money, but many are also lucky enough to be in a relationship with a beautiful woman; Every team has about two dozen wives or girlfriends who accompany their players, and even though they are all attractive, only one can claim the title of being a team’s hottest WAG. Here is a list showcasing the hottest WAG on every MLB team.
30 Atlanta Braves - Chelsea Goff
The Braves franchise has existed since 1871, but prior to it actually being based in Atlanta as of 1966, the franchise changed names several times, while first being located in Boston and then Milwaukee. Between 1991 and 2005, the Braves dominated their division, winning it 14 consecutive years, and resulting in a World Series win in 1995. This season’s team wishes that they were that dominate, as they are having a truly terrible year; but one of the bright spots this season has been their first baseman Freddie Freeman, who the team drafted back in 2007. Since debuting with the team in 2010, he has gone on to become one of the faces of the franchise, with almost 1,000 career hits and 500 RBI in only six seasons. As of 2014 though, he has been married to the incredibly attractive Chelsea Goff, who is a former bikini model and current realtor.
29 Arizona Diamondbacks - Emily Greinke
Last year, the baseball season came to an end with the Kansas City Royals winning the World Series, and had Zack Greinke stayed with the team, he may have added a championship to his career accomplishments. That was not the case however, and Greinke ended up being traded to Milwaukee, and then to the Angels before signing with the Dodgers in 2012. After three years with the Dodgers, Greinke opted out of his contract and signed a more lucrative 6-year deal with the Arizona Diamondbacks last offseason. He has not performed all that well this season with his new team, but at least he came to Arizona with his wife Emily, who he has been married to since 2009. Emily is a former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader, and a former winner of the Miss Daytona Beach beauty contest; and she even likes baseball, as well as other sports like surfing, golf, and tennis.
28 Baltimore Orioles - Jill Davis
The American League East is considered to be the toughest division in all of baseball, and for the past few years, the Baltimore Orioles have managed to be quite successful within the division thanks primarily to their hitting. At the centre of their offense is their first baseman/designated hitter Chris Davis, who initially made his MLB debut in 2008 with the Texas Rangers. In 2011, Texas traded Davis to the Orioles, which has turned out to work exceptionally well for both him and the team, as he has become one of the league’s most dangerous home run threats. Davis has now been with Baltimore for six years, and when he is not out on the field smashing balls out of the ballpark, he is at home with his gorgeous wife Jill, and he has been married to the Orioles’ hottest WAG since 2011.
27 Boston Red Sox - Tiffany Nicole Smith
At last year’s trade deadline, the Toronto Blue Jays made a huge splash when they were able to land starting pitcher David Price from the Detroit Tigers, a splash that was justifiably huge thanks to Price’s proven pitching abilities. The Tampa Bay Rays were the ones who initially drafted him first overall in 2007, and he ultimately spent 7 years with them after debuting in 2008. In 2014, the Rays traded Price to Detroit, where he spent a year before being sent to Toronto, and even though he would have liked to stay in Toronto, he ended up signing a big 7-year contract with the Boston Red Sox last offseason. Accompanying him to Boston was his long-time girlfriend Tiffany Nicole Smith, who is not only currently the team’s hottest WAG, but who has also ironically told off Red Sox fans in the past on social media for the way they talked about her man while he was still with Tampa Bay.
26 Chicago Cubs - Julianna Zobrist
In 2004, Houston drafted Ben Zobrist, but he did not make his MLB debut until 2006 after the Astros traded him to Tampa Bay, where he played for 8 seasons. During the 2014 offseason, he was traded to the Oakland Athletics where he played for roughly 4 months before being traded to Kansas City, where he would go on to become a World Series Champion. After winning his first championship last season, Zobrist went on to sign a 4-year deal with the Chicago Cubs, where it seems he may be able to add at least one more championship to his resume. Aside from his veteran presence, he also brings his wife Julianna to the team, the woman he has been married to since 2005. Julianna is a Christian Pop singer who stays at the couple’s home in Tennessee with the couple’s three children when she is not out performing.
25 Chicago White Sox - Brianne Sale
As of right now, Chris Sale is without a doubt one of the best starting pitchers in both the American League and the entire MLB, a statement which is heavily backed up by the fact that he has struck out over 200 batters for 4 straight years now. The Chicago White Sox drafted Sale in 2010, and he went on to debut with the team later that same year, which made him only the fifth player in MLB history to ever debut in the same year he was drafted. In his 7 years with the team, Sale has become the White Sox’s Ace, and it is only fitting that the team’s best pitcher also provides the team with the hottest WAG. Brianne met Chris when the two attended the same college in Florida, and as of now, they have been married since 2012 and share one child together. As it turns out, Brianne used to be a model, but now she is an aspiring massage therapist, which is very beneficial for her husband if he ever suffers any soreness.
24 Cincinnati Reds - Jeanne Paulus
In the 1970s, the Cincinnati Reds were known as the “Big Red Machine” because of their incredibly productive lineup which was made up of multiple Hall of Fame players. The current Reds team wishes they were as successful as those teams who won back-to-back championships, but the truth is, they are just not that good of a team lately. One of their only bright spots though, has been their first baseman Joey Votto, who has been a part of the franchise since they drafted him in 2002. Since debuting with the team in 2007, the Canadian has gone on to become their most important player, so important that he was even named the National League’s MVP in 2010. For over five years now, Votto has also been in a relationship with Jeanne Paulus who splits her time between Florida and Cincinnati. Jeanne works as a dental hygienist, but she also enjoys studying aerobics and helping animals.
23 Cleveland Indians - Jenna Hammaker
The Cleveland Indians are having one heck of season this year, which is a very welcome change for the franchise which has failed numerous times to make the postseason over the last decade. The reason behind their success this year is because of how deep they are in both pitching and hitting, and Yan Gomes is a part of their very effective lineup. The Brazilian-born catcher started his career with Toronto, who drafted him in 2009, and he remained with the team until 2012 when they traded him to Cleveland. Gomes has so far played 4 years with the Indians, and in that time, he has continuously had the team’s hottest WAG in the form of his wife Jenna Hammaker. The pair have been married since 2012, and she is very much aware of the extensive travelling required of a baseball player during a full season, as she happens to be the daughter of former MLB All-Star pitcher, Atlee Hammaker.
22 Colorado Rockies - Mallie Crow
Ever since they came into the MLB in 1993, the Colorado Rockies have made the postseason only three times, with their most successful campaign coming in 2007 when they lost in the World Series to the Boston Red Sox. For 10 years, the Rockies had a great shortstop in the form of Troy Tulowitzki, but last season they traded him to Toronto in exchange for another shortstop in Jose Reyes, who is not even with the team anymore; but luckily they also had rookie Trevor Story waiting in the wings. In his first MLB season, Story has so far performed extremely well, so much so that he may in fact be named the National League’s Rookie of the Year; and even though he is a rookie, he still possesses the team’s hottest WAG. Mallie Crow met Story when the two attended the same Texas high school, and they have been dating ever since, and look very cute together. She thanks God for bringing them together, but if anyone should be thanking God for their relationship, it should be Trevor.
21 Detroit Tigers - Kate Upton
In 2004, the Detroit Tigers lucked out when they managed to draft Justin Verlander, a starting pitcher who for the most part has been a phenomenal starting pitcher for the team. Even though Verlander has accomplished several things in his career, and is finally having a great resurgence this year, his biggest accomplishment is probably that he is currently engaged to the most well known and hottest WAG on this entire list. Kate Upton is a professional model who really rose to popularity after appearing on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, and she has also entered into the world of acting, appearing in movies like Tower Heist and The Other Woman. The couple have been together since 2011, and got engaged earlier this year; and seeing as most of you have definitely seen a picture of Kate Upton, then you know full well how lucky Verlander really is.
20 Houston Astros - Ashley McHugh
Last season, the Houston Astros surprised many with how well they played, and they were able to make it into last year's postseason thanks to some really good young players. Collin McHugh is one of the Astros’ starting pitchers, and he has been with the team since they claimed him off of waivers prior to the 2014 season. McHugh was initially drafted in 2008 by the Mets, and debuted with them in 2012, but barely a year later he was traded to Colorado where he played for only a couple of months. The Astros seem to like his pitching style, which means he could remain with the team for quite some time, which would mean his wife would likely still hold the title of the team’s hottest WAG. Ashley first met her husband in high school, but it was not until the two met each other again in college that they started a relationship which has so far culminated in an over 7-year marriage. It is questionable just how interested Ashley is in baseball, especially since she is focused on her own career as a professional graphic designer.
19 Kansas City Royals - Francesca Escobar
The Kansas City Royals are currently still the defending World Series Champions, and even though they have not been as dominate this year as they were last year because of injuries, they still have a chance of winning it all again if they manage to get into the postseason. The reason for that is because their team is incredibly deep, and their shortstop Alcides Escobar is a big part of the team’s lineup. Escobar began his MLB career with Milwaukee in 2008, where he stayed until 2010 when he was traded to Kansas City; and as of right now, he currently has the hottest WAG amongst his teammates. Francesca has been married to Alcides for a couple of years now, and the pair both share a child together and go virtually everywhere together. As it turns out, Francesca can often times be found within the players’ clubhouse with her husband, and based on her appearance, her presence is the room is quite a positive one.
18 Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim - Kristin Travis
As a starting pitcher, Jered Weaver is the ace of the Los Angeles Angels’ pitching staff, and the California native has spent his entire 11-year career with the Angels who drafted him back in 2004. Weaver is currently the team’s longest tenured player, and serves as one of the faces of the franchise, which means it should come as no surprise that he also has the hottest woman by his side. Kristin Travis first met Weaver in college, where she herself was also involved in sports as a member of the school’s women’s soccer team. The pair dated for nine years before getting married in 2011, and since then they have had two children. Since she finished school, Kristin has worked in special ed, which has allowed her to become even more involved in charitable events than other baseball wives and girlfriends.
17 Los Angeles Dodgers - Maggie Germaine Ethier
The Los Angeles Dodgers have been picked as favorites to win the World Series the past three years, and for good reason, seeing as they can score runs and possess the best pitcher in the game, but for some reason, they have fallen short each year. Andre Ethier was drafted by the Dodgers in 2003, and ever since he debuted with the team in 2006, he has remained a part of the team’s outfield. Over his now 11-year career, he has won a Gold Glove, and been named an All-Star twice, but he also happens to have his team’s hottest WAG. Maggie Germaine Ethier first met Andre during orientation at Arizona State University, and they did not start dating until their respective roommates began their own relationship.While in college, the pair dated on and of, and by the time they were out of school, they were broken up; but luckily they eventually found each other again, and have since been married for over 10 years. Maggie is no stranger to athletics, as she was a part of the university’s gymnastics team for 4 years, a team that she has also coached from time to time.
16 Miami Marlins - Hayley Milon
Over the course of their 23-year history, the Miami Marlins franchise has won two World Series, a feat that the current team is trying accomplish this season, as they currently possess the best team they have had in years. Justin Bour is a part of this team, and the first baseman has been a part of the active roster since making his MLB debut in 2014, even though he was originally drafted by the Cubs. Bour may not be that well known of a player, but the lack of notoriety did not prevent him from landing his team’s hottest WAG. Hayley Milon basically deals with sports on a year-long basis, as she is a sports host, anchor, and reporter who currently works for the Washington based NHL and NBA franchises. Her main job may be focusing on other sports, but she is well versed in baseball as well, as she has also covered the Washington Nationals.
15 Milwaukee Brewers - Larisa Fraser
The Milwaukee Brewers have been around since 1969, and even though the franchise has still not won a championship, it does not mean that they have not had good players. Ryan Braun has been the Brewers’ best player for several seasons now, and serves as their everyday right fielder, and although he is a great player who has won an MVP award, his career will forever be marred because of the fact that he was caught using PED’s. His career may be tarnished, but at least he goes home to his wife Larisa Fraser, who for all intensive purposes, would cause any doped athlete to forget that they were caught. The pair have been married since 2013, and this Canadian-born beauty is a full-time model who has also managed to appear on some tv shows like CSI; and she also runs her own blogs which focus on giving fitness and nutritional advice to others.
14 Minnesota Twins - Renee Dozier
This season has been a travesty for the Minnesota Twins, especially since they are in a division that possibly has 3 World Series contenders in it, which is unfortunate because they do have decent players. Brian Dozier was drafted by the team in 2009, and he has been the team’s everyday second baseman ever since his debut in 2012. In 2014, he may have not had that good of a year statistically, but at least he married his long-time girlfriend Renee, who continues to be the Twins’ most attractive WAG. Renee attended the University of Southern Mississippi, where she was a midfielder on the school’s women's soccer team; and she continues to be physically active, as she not only goes hunting from time to time, but she has also become quite the avid cyclist while living in Minneapolis.
13 New York Mets - Molly Beers
Last season, the New York Mets went all the way to the World Series where they lost to the Royals, a feat that they hope to replicate this year but with a much better result. At the head of the Mets’ roster is David Wright, who serves as both the team’s third baseman and captain, and he has arguably been their best and most reliable player ever since he debuted with the team in 2004. Wright currently holds multiple franchise records, but the achievement he is probably the most proud of is marrying Molly Beers. Molly and David met each other sometime in 2008, and even though they decided to keep their relationship private, they made it public knowledge later that same summer. The two got married in 2013, and although Wright is still in the middle of a very lucrative contact, she continues her modeling career in New York, where she has appeared in several JCPenney marketing campaigns.
12 New York Yankees - Leigh Williams
Mark Teixeira began his professional baseball career in 2001 when he was drafted by the Texas Rangers, the team that he remained with until 2007 when he was traded to Atlanta. He would spend 2 years with the Braves until again being traded in 2008, this time to the Angels,; but that stint was a short one, as that same offseason he signed an 8-year contract with the New York Yankees. Teixeira has been married to his wife Leigh Williams since 2002, but their relationship goes back much further to when they first started dating while both studying at Georgia Tech University. The pair currently have 3 children together, and she helps to run her husband’s charity fund which offers scholarships for up to 6 high school students wishing to go to college. Mark will be retiring at the end of this year, but at least it will mean he will be able to spend more quality time with his good looking wife.
11 Oakland Athletics - Eireann Dolan
Many baseball fans may not know this, but the Oakland Athletics franchise has in fact won the World Series 9 times, but only 4 of those championships came when they were actually located in Oakland. For the past two decades, Oakland has had to operate under significant financial constraints, forcing them to sign cheap players with specific attributes, and to develop young players who they almost always get rid of prior to their free agency year. Sean Doolittle is one of these relatively non-expensive players, and since 2014, he has served as the team’s closer. Being a closer can sometimes be very stressful, but luckily for Doolittle, he gets to see his girlfriend Eireann Dolan when he goes home. Eireann is a fan of sci-fi, but she is also a fan of sports, as she is the host of CSN Authentic’s sports show that covers the baseball teams in the San Francisco Bay area. She also hosts a new podcast with another baseball WAG which deals with being in relationships with professional athletes.
10 Philadelphia Phillies - Krystle Campbell
The Philadelphia Phillies have been around since 1883, making them one of the oldest teams in the MLB, but in their long history, they have only managed to win 2 World Series, with the second coming in 2008. That year, the Phillies had a scary offense which was led by Ryan Howard, who has been with the team since 2004, and who was at one time considered one of baseball’s biggest home run threats. If the past few years are any indication, Howard’s career is on the decline, but although his time with Philadelphia may soon likely be over, he is lucky enough to still have the hottest WAG currently on the team. He met Krystal Campbell in 2009, proposed to her in 2011, and married her in 2012; and as it turns out, she is connected to another Philadelphia sports franchise. For six years, Krystle was a cheerleader for the Eagles, but she is also a college graduate who used her degree to become a 2nd grade teacher.
9 Pittsburgh Pirates - Maria Hanslovan
For a long time the Pittsburgh Pirates were not a good team, but the past few years has seen the team become much more competitive, and a big reason for that is their All-Star outfielder Andrew McCutchen. The Pirates drafted McCutchen in 2005, but did not call him up until 2009, and since then he has quietly become one of the best outfielders in baseball. He may have won a Gold Glove, multiple Silver Slugger Awards, and been named the 2013 National League MVP, but he also managed to win the heart of his wife, Maria Hanslovan. Maria has her own athletic background, as she is a former gymnast, soccer player, and cheerleader; but she is also incredibly smart as she possesses a bachelor’s degree in both cosmetic chemistry and biochemistry. Those degrees allowed her to nab a marketing job, and since 2014, McCutchen has been lucky enough to be married to her.
8 San Diego Padres - Kristen Eck Norris
A couple of years ago, the San Diego Padres made several offseason acquisitions, which led many insiders to proclaim them as one of the top contending teams in the National League; but as it turns out, they have not even made the postseason once since making those acquisitions. In fact, the Padres ended up getting rid of several of the players they acquired, but luckily for him, Derek Norris was not one of those who was let go. Norris was initially drafted by Washington, but he did not debut until 2012 when he was a member of the Oakland Athletics; the team that he played for until 2014 when he was traded to San Diego. As a catcher, Norris plays an important role in every game he plays in, and his importance has been well rewarded, as he is currently married to his long time love Kristen Eck.
7 San Francisco Giants - Alexis Cozombolidis
The best team in the MLB the past decade has so far been the San Francisco Giants, who have won 3 World Series since 2010, and the reason for that is plain and simple-they are a very good team. Hunter Pence started his career with Houston in 2007, and in 2011 he was traded to Philadelphia where he stayed for several months before being traded to San Francisco. Since 2012, Pence has played right field for the Giants, where he has helped the team to win 2 championships; and this offseason, he will be marrying his fiancee, Alexis Cozombolidis. This Greek goddess is well known within the video game community, as she used to work for the gaming news site IGN. She really likes pineapples, and is greatly involved on social media, where she goes by the name LetsGetLexi, and possesses her own Youtube channel. She also appears on the new aforementioned podcast with Eireann Dolan.
6 Seattle Mariners - Marissa Cishek
The Seattle Mariners have been around since 1977, and even though they have made the postseason a total of 4 times, they do not have anything to show for it. This season though, the team is trying desperately to make the playoffs, which they may do, but if this year is any indication, they will definitely start to be competitive within their own division. In order to improve their bullpen, the Mariners went out and signed reliever Steve Cishek last offseason, and he has done quite well as their closer this season. When Cishek came to Seattle, he brought his beautiful wife Marissa with him, which gave him the hottest WAG on an MLB team. The couple have been married since 2012 and have a daughter together, and according to Marissa, if it were not for her noticing him at a basketball game, they likely would have never met.
5 St. Louis Cardinals - Alissa Wong
In terms of overall success, the St. Louis Cardinals are the second most successful franchise in all of baseball with 11 World Series Championships. Since their inaugural season in 1882, the Cardinals have put together some really good teams, primarily due to the fact that they have the best developmental system in the MLB, which is why they are a considered a contender almost every year. This year, the team is fighting for a playoff spot, and it will be up to every player, including their second baseman Kolten Wong to get them in. Wong was drafted by St. Louis in 2011, and has been on the active roster since 2013; and he is also lucky enough to be married to the team’s hottest WAG. Alissa first met her husband in 2011 while they both attended the University of Hawaii, where they started out as friends before becoming romantically involved. This gorgeous brunette was a part of her college’s track and field team, and possesses a business degree; and for fun, she enjoys to go scuba diving and snorkeling.
4 Tampa Bay Rays - Jaime Edmondson
The Tampa Bay Rays may suffer from poor attendance records, and may be having a surprisingly bad year, but they are still a force to be reckoned with in the American League East thanks to their proficiency of developing talented pitchers. Evan Longoria may not be a pitcher, but the Rays did in fact develope him for two years after they drafted him in 2006; and since they called him up in 2008, he has gone on to become one of the best third basemen in baseball. Longoria is without a doubt the Rays’ best player, and although he has earned multiple accolades, at the top of that list has to be that he landed the breathtaking Jaime Edmondson. Jaime is a former Playboy Playmate, and Miami Dolphins’ cheerleader, who has appeared on 2 seasons of the reality show, The Amazing Race. This lovely lady now shares two children with Longoria, who she finally married in 2015 after several years together; and she is just as smart as she is beautiful as she possesses a degree in criminal justice.
3 Texas Rangers - Susannah Higgins
2010 and 2011 were both very exciting and disappointing seasons for the Texas Rangers, as both those years they made it all the way to the World Series, where they lost to the Giants and Cardinals respectively. Mitch Moreland has been the team’s first baseman since 2010, making him present for those championship loses, and this year he is hoping to help the Rangers to finally go all the way and win. Moreland has been married to his wife Susannah Higgins since 2011, and their romance actually goes back quite awhile. According to her, they first met on a beach when she was 13 and he 15, and they went on to spend the next two years speaking on the phone virtually every night. At some point they separated for a lengthy period of time, until 2009 when they came across each other again; and Mitch must have really missed her, because it only took him 10 months to propose to her.
2 Toronto Blue Jays - Marikym Hervieux
The Toronto Blue Jays are currently the only team in Canada, and they managed to provide the country with back-to-back World Series wins in 1992 and 1993. Throughout their history, the Blue Jays have had several Canadian-born players, a trend that continues today as their everyday catcher is veteran Montreal-native, Russell Martin. He may not have a World Series win under his belt, but he is indeed one of the game’s more influential catchers, who has helped every team he has played for make the postseason. Martin has his girlfriend to thank for being a stabilizing force in his life, and based on her looks, Marikym Hervieux can stabilize any man’s life. Marikym is a Montreal-born French Canadian model who has also appeared on television, with her biggest role coming in an episode of HBO’s Entourage.
1 Washington Nationals - Kayla Varner
The Washington Nationals franchise has been located in the U.S. capital since 2005, but prior to that the team went by the name Expos and was located in Montreal. Even though it has been over a decade since the relocation, the fan base in Montreal must still be incredibly upset about their team’s departure, especially when they see all the good players now on the roster. Bryce Harper is considered to be the Nationals’ best player, as well as one of the top three players in the entire league, which is why many believe that the right fielder will become baseball’s first 500 million dollar player. As Washington’s best player, it should come as no surprise that he also has his team’s hottest WAG, and Kayla Varner is indeed very attractive. The pair communicated with each other for years over social media before actually dating, and the relationship has so far culminated in the couple’s engagement. Kayla is a former athlete herself, as she was part of Ohio State's; women’s soccer team, and as long as Harper does not mess things up, he is going to have one heck of a wife.
