One of our readers pointed us to the coolest thing we have read in a while (thanks Thad). It is The Life of the Baseball Wife. The idea in and of itself is pretty cool. But what makes it even better, is that most of the authors are married to current or former Rays or Rays prospects including:

Nicole Johnson (wife of Elliot Johnson)
Shelly Ruggiano (wife of Justin Ruggiano)
Kelli Ridgway (wife of Jeff Ridgway)
Katelyn Davis (wife of Wade Davis)
Jamie Cormier (wife of Lance Cormier)
Nicole Houser (wife of James Houser)
Wendy Owens (wife of Jeremy Owens)

There are the cool stories by Nicole Johnson on her husband’s dreaded 2007 season, and what they went through this spring when Elliot was placed on (and cleared) waivers. And there is the amazing story by Wade Davis’ wife about how she was afraid to fly so her dad bought her softball team a nice bus so that they could still compete in tournaments as far away as Texas (she lived in upstate New York).

Anyway, it is a very cool site with a lot of potential and we are sure it will show up in the “Webtopia” from time to time.

    Thanks for sharing this. It's an interesting reminder that most professional baseball players are not living "lifestyles of the rich and famous" lives.

    I especially enjoyed Katelyn Davis' story -- although thanks to the Professor i will always think of her as the "Marlboro Girl."

    Uhhh so sorry to point this out but is Wade Davis and his wife pilar opposites because she seriously sounds absolutely hilarious. They must be that opposites attract thing, good for them.

    apart from an entry or two, this blog is a bunch of whiney women complaining about a life they signed up for. SMILE WOMEN.
