Ryan Ludwick's wife Joanie Ludwick

For as consistent of a player that Ryan Ludwick is, he sure seems to switch team often. Just taking a guess here, but I'm sure that has to be pretty annoying. Apparently not if you're Ryan Ludwick's wife Joanie, as it seems like she relishes the task of finding new apartments.

Ludwick started his career in 2002 with Texas, before getting moved to Cleveland in 2003. After settling in with St. Louis, he started getting regular playing time in 2007 and blew up the next year with 37 bombs. Despite his emergence as every day player, he was traded two years later to San Diego in a 2010 deadline deal. I hope he didn't blink, because the very next trade deadline, San Diego shipped him back across the country to Pittsburgh. He didn't stick there, so Ludwick signed a one year deal with Cincinnati. Judging by his stats this year, there's hope he might may not have to pack and leave... at least not right away.

Ludwick first met his wife in 4th grade. But this isn't a story about childhood sweethearts. Both Ryan and Joanie continued on with their respective life's until their paths crossed again after college. They were married in 2003 and built a home in Texas. They have one son, Stetson, who was born in 2008.

    Explain to me the point of posting about a wife/girlfriend and not having a picture? Nobody fucking cares if you can't see her!

    Mr. Jordan Chase, You are disgusting for talking to Mrs. Ludwick in the manner that you have. You should be ashamed of yourself. It's people like you who prevent people such as Mrs Ludwick from doing nice things for fans of her husband. Ryan and his wife live in the town next to me and I am so proud that they chose our great state to live in. On behalf of human beings
    Everywhere Mrs. Ludwick, I apologize for the behavior of others. Thank you Ryan for having such a great year for our Reds. We'll get them next year. Have a great winter. Your Biggest Fans, David and Lori Ray

    Well said, Mr. Ray, well said. I am praying that you come back to the Cincinnati Reds in 2013, Ryan! You were so exciting to watch this year. Whenever you were at bat, I had great hope and anticipation. You were dependable and brought fun to the team. Thank you, thank you!!

    Hi Joanie
    Ryan was in my 8th grade science class at O'Callaghan MS in Las Vegas. I have followed his career in baseball and I am so proud of him. I wanted him to be a scientist but I KNEW he had baseball as a passion. I can only imagine what it is like to be the spouse of a major league player and I hope you are happy in life.
