But they got back together and were spotted on a romantic Bahamas holiday apparently fully in love once again. Two years after that, Verlander popped the question and they married in 2017 after he won the World Series with the Houston Astros.

Emily Rizzo and Anthony Rizzo
Anthony and Emily Rizzo tend to keep their private life…private. Well, that is until the vaccine scandal happened! Anthony Rizzo was the first Cubs player to announce he would not be getting a covid-19 vaccine. At the time, this was a big scandal online causing dissent among fans and teammates.
During the hoopla, his wife, Emily Rizzo, came into the picture. No one really knew much about her until Anthony’s unfortunate notoriety. Emily Vakos (Rizzo) graduated in nutrition food management and natural science from Arizona State University. She met her now-husband as a nutrition intern for the Chicago Cubs.
Samantha Bracksieck and Aaron Judge
Aaron Judge is definitely one of the greats. This right-fielder plays for the New York Yankees and was unanimously selected for the American League Rookie of the Year in 2017. Following that up, he finished second in voting for the AL MVP award. Quick in his career, Judge really showed his colors when he easily broke Mark McGwire's MLB rookie record of 49 home runs. Judge beat it with 52.
Standing beside this 6’7” MLB All-Star is Samantha Bracksieck. Both went to school in Linden High School in California, and then they subsequently went to college together!

Heidi Hamel was just your run-of-the-mill country girl until her life got turned upside down after meeting her now-husband, Cole Hamel. Cole Hamel is a pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers. He’s been in baseball since 2002, so we’d say he knows his way around third base (wink, wink.) Heidi is a health and physical education teacher, but she also has a few pastimes.
She’s done it all! From fireworks to lingerie, Heidi likes to work. In all her free time she even competed on the popular reality TV show, Survivor.

This centerfielder also can boast that he's won the Silver Slugger Award a total of eight times. Another thing he can be proud of? His beautiful wife!
The pair met in their high school Spanish class, and it was amor at first sight! Trout started acting out just to get Jessica Cox’s attention and to sit next to her (as she sat in the back of the class). Today, Cox is a middle school teacher in New Jersey. The couple has now welcomed their first son.
Kristen Posey and Buster Posey
Buster Posey made headlines recently after he said he was going to retire after a fantastic 13-year career with the Giants. What a decade it's been! Posey finished as a rookie with a .305 batting average, 18 home runs, and 67 runs batted in. That made him Rookie of the Year. Skipping ahead to today, he still has one of the highest batting averages among active players. He's also the 4th-highest catcher among all active players.
Buster and Kristen Posey tied the knot in 2009, and it's been a fairytale ever since. The two lived in the same town and met when Buster was taking the SATs in high school.

Wanda Torres and Yadier Molina
Yadi Molina has spent his entire 18-year MLB career playing with the St. Louis Cardinals, and he's certainly made a name for himself.

On top of that, he's also a two-time World Series Champion and has appeared in a jaw-dropping 12 playoffs.
Since 2007, Yadi has been married to the love of his life, Wanda Torres. They were friends since childhood, and that definitely has helped their marriage be one of the strongest in the league. Torres prefers to stay out of the media spotlight and doesn't have a single social media account. Currently, the two have three children.
Yainee Alonso and Manny Machado
Everyone knew Manny Machado was going to be a star from the start. He was highly recruited from an early age.

You may know a lot about Machado, but what about his better half? Yainee Alonso grew up with baseball as her brother (Yonder Alonso) was pretty skilled at the game.

Brianna Hammonds and Mookie Betts
Markus Lynn Betts, aka Mookie, started his career in 2014, and it didn't take long for him to start shining like a star. In 2018, he was playing with the Red Sox when he became the first MLB player in history to win the Most Valuable Player, Silver Slugger, Gold Glove, a Batting title, and the World Series in the same season – the same season! What can’t he do?!
Through this whirlwind of a year, Brianna Hammonds hasn't left his side. The two actually met when they were teenagers, and they've undoubtedly been one of the happiest couples in sports history.

The two are married and welcomed their first daughter in 2017.
Kyle Schwarber and Paige Hartman
Kyle Schwarber has always had baseball in his blood, so it wasn't much of a surprise when he was drafted right out of college. His first MLB debut was with the Cubs in 2015, although he's also played for the Washington Nationals and Boston Red Sox. In 2021, he earned his first All-Star award, but it goes great next to his 2016 World Series championship win.
Throughout the years, Paige Hartman has stood happily by his side. This is another story of high school sweethearts getting married.

Apparently, Manny came to Yainee’s brother to ask permission to date Yainee…that’s what’s called a gentleman, folks!
They spent several years getting to know each other before they got married. Manny must love Yainee quite a lot though, because he got her face tattooed on his right arm! Manny made major headlines for his All-Star level contract with the Padres in 2019. He signed a 10-year, $300 million contract…needless to say, Yainee doesn’t work!
