Joel Hanrahan's wife Kim Hanrahan

After the disaster that was 2012, it’s no surprise that there are plenty of new faces in the Red Sox clubhouse. One of the higher priorities for the new was obtaining a new closer, which they did by way of Pittsburgh with Joel Hanrahan. After a rough spring, it seems like Hanrahan might still be adjusting to his new environment. Joel Hanrahan and his wife Kim Hanrahan also are doing some adjusting at home having just had their first child.

Joel and Kim were only recently became husband and wife, with their wedding a little over a year ago in January 2012. They welcomed son Ryan on March 11, 2013. Boston was an ideal new destination for the Hanrahan’s, as Kim still has family in the area. Prior to motherhood, Kim (nee Donovan) was known for her charitable work with Joel’s prior teams, specifically the Shadyside Family House and a domestic violence shelter in the Pittsburgh area.

Joel Hanrahan was actually first brought up as a starter for the Washington Nationals. Somewhat out of necessity, he was moved to the closer role where he flourished. He was traded the Pirates in 2011 and is coming to Boston having made the last two NL All Star rosters.

    Kim; I wanted to send you and Joel congratulations on Ryan. You left the Pirate Family before we could see him around PNC Park. We, in guest relations, miss seeing you and your mother around the ball park. Joel was awesome when you and Joel would leave the ballpark each night and he would sign every autograph request. I have moved back to Chicago this year, but follow Joel's career. Tell Joel that my whole family is rooting for him to come back from his second tommy john surgery procedure. I would love to see him in a White Sox uniform in the future. You were one of the friendliest wives at the ballpark. Ryan is one lucky kid to have two great parents in you guys. My brother is with the 101st airborne unit. He sereverd several tours over seas in Afghanistand, Germany and Korea. My brother even got a local bar owner to turn on Pirate Games on and made him Joel's biggest fan. The Korean would refer to Joel as the Big Man. My brother replied, yes, but he had a bigger heart. Take care. God Bless.
