The baseball world is a tight knit community, none more evident than when it comes to Manny Machado's girlfriend Yainee Alonso

It makes sense with teammates spending months together on the road, and in hotels from pro baseball all the way down through the farm systems. But the tight knit community extends outside the locker rooms as well. In the case of MLB phenom Manny Machado and his former University of Miami first baseman, and current San Diego Padre, Yonder Alonso, their friendship was spurned despite never donning the same uniform. Though the two were never teammates, their connection in the local baseball scene helped bring Manny Machado's fiancee Yainee Alonso into the picture.

Yainee Alonso is the sister of Yonder, who met Manny while the Yonder was playing at the University of Miami. Machado told the Baltimore Sun about the relationship with Alonso despite different home jerseys:

That’s the thing about Miami people. Guys that live in Miami ... I might live in Hialeah and he might be from Key West, but you’re from Miami, so even if we don’t know each other, we know the name and, automatically, it’s like we’ve known each other for years."

Manny and Yainee are set to be married on December 6, 2014 in Paris. As Machado told the Baltimore Sun in the same article, he's excited to officially become family with his closest friend Yonder, saying “We’re already like brothers,’
