Rich Hill’s wife Caitlin Hill met him in Milton, Massachusetts. They married in 2007. Originally, they met in Milton High School and dated ever since. Rich and Caitlin have one young child. A few years ago, they both lost a two month-old. Since then, they went on with their life as a small family unit and continued looking forward. When they lost their son, Rich took a small amount of time and then rejoined the Red Sox spring training. At the time, he was on Boston, and his parents and grandparents were ecstatic to watch him play.
Rich performed well and signed to the Oakland A’s for six million dollars. That was a quantum leap forward for him and Caitlin. Rich Hill’s wife stuck with him while he played for two thousand dollars a month in the minor leagues. The death of Brooks, their infant son, did not slow down their relationship. I don’t know the couple, but maybe their other son helped them to keep going. It’s possible they didn’t have as much time to dwell on the death since they had to take care of him and provide for him. No matter what kept them moving forward, their story is amazing. They are inspirational, brave, remarkable people. Persevering seems insufficient to describe these two.
Caitlin is very happy in Los Angeles with Rich and their son. Back in 2013, Rich Hill’s wife participated in the Red Sox runway charity show. It’s a fashion show where the Red Sox wives and girlfriends dress up in nice clothes and strut their stuff for various causes. All in all, life really started to improve in baseball during that big Red Sox season. Rich started pumping in the good pitches, Caitlin started dressing up in designer clothes. Who could ask for more? Now, after two moves to Oakland and Los Angeles, things are still going strong. It wasn’t like they were poor before (since Rich signed a few 400 grand contracts), but the seven-figure ones never hurt!
