Congratulations are in order for Andrew McCutchen’s wife Maria McCutchen. The couple was married on November 22, which aligns nicely with Andrew’s jersey number (which is 22). With McCutchen safe to avoid the drama of hot stove season, the couple is safe to jet out on what’s sure to be a luxury honeymoon. If there’s any question as to whether Andrew McCutchen’s wife would take the McCutchen name – it’s already official on her Twitter account – Maria McCutchen.
Andrew McCutchen proposed to girlfriend Maria Hanslovan on Ellen on 12/11/13. Check out the YouTube clip of Andrew McCutchen proposing to his future wife Maria Hanslovan in action.
Andrew McCutchen is the best baseball player you probably don’t know and arguably one of the best 5 players in the league. While there was no doubt that he’d be headed to Kansas City to take part in the annual All Star game, people were very surprised to see him as a late replacement for the injured Giancarlo Stanton in the Home Run Derby.
Andrew McCutchen was ready to say no to competing the derby when captain Matt Kemp tapped the Pirates star to take part, but was only convinced into it at the coaxing of his girlfriend. Andrew McCutchen’s girlfriend (at the time), Maria Hanslovan, talked him into it by reminding him it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity, something he admits he never expected to be a part of. McCutchen talked to WPXI in Pittsburgh:
“You look at the guys who are in the Home Run Derby, and they’re guys who hit 40, 50 home runs. They’re big guys. They’re guys that can drive the ball 500 feet. I’m not the person who’s going to hit a ball 500 feet. It’s just not going to happen. I can hit some home runs, just not that far. I never thought I’d be in a Home Run Derby. Ever.”
It’s an admittedly tough position forAndrew McCutchen’s wife to be placed in, as rabid fans longing for success may be quick to point the finger in the unlikely event that McCutchen goes all Abreu on us. She’s already faced an admittedly difficult time in Pittsburgh after riling up the Steel City following Steelers 2012 loss to the Tebow led Broncos in the playoffs. The crowd got so worked up that McCutchen had to step in on Twitter to ask for them to chill out:
@TheCUTCH22: and so much animosity towards @MariaHanslovan.She meant no harm towards the Steelers.she is a fan n God fearing christian.simmer down folks.
I suppose if things go awry in the second half, McCutchen won’t be shy to step in a second time if need be. For her sake, for his fantasy owner’s sake, for the fans sake, and for Andre McCutchen’s sake…. let;s hope there’s no need.
