The Astros and Phillies are in the World Series, but the players wouldn’t be here without the ardent support of their lovely partners, so let’s meet them!
Kate Upton, the wife of Astros ace Justin Verlander, needs no introduction; the SI swimsuit model has been by JV’s side for the Astros’ previous three World Series trips.
After receiving their first child, Knox, in August, Houston third baseman Alex Bregman and his wife, Reagan, plan to have another reason to celebrate in a few days.
Zach Wheeler has had a fantastic season, and his wife, Dominique, has been rooting for him every step of the way as he tries to help the Phillies win a title.
We’d be foolish not to mention Jose Altuve, the Astros’ feisty, gifted second baseman, and his wife, Giannina (aka Nina), who have been married since they were teenagers.
Win or lose, Aaron Nola, Wheeler’s teammate, will have reason to celebrate: the 29-year-old flame-throwing righty is set to marry his fiancée, Hunter Harrington, next month.
Right fielder Nick Castellanos of the Philadelphia Phillies is quickly becoming a fan favourite in Philly for his great defence, making his wife Jess incredibly proud of her husband.
The Astros have a 3-2 lead on the Phillies as the series shifts back to H-Town … so expect to see these women in full force over the weekend!!
