Charlie Morton’s wife Cindy Morton just gave birth to their second child this year. The birth put Cindy mostly out of action for a good six-weeks, limiting her movement. Their older son, Cam, is now around two years of age. The birth coincided with some surgeries that Charlie himself had to go through to help out his pitching mechanics.
Charlie’s known Cindy for a long time, and they’ve been together since at least 2009. Charlie Morton’s wife was pictured all the way back then at a Pirates Casino night. The couple were married in 2012 after almost five years, so I think they’ve known each other since about 2008. The forums from all the way back in August of 2008 state that she was his girlfriend then, so they may have known each other even further back. It’s been a long road for them, but at least they haven’t had to move too much. They’ve been in Pittsburgh since 2009. Since they’ve been together, the couple has had a lot of involvement with community and charity organizations. They also formed something called Morton’s Military Initiative, which is meant to strengthen the morale of the military community. The idea is to provide money to purchase cool stuff for troops stationed in the Middle East. Seems like a nice idea.
Cindy was spotted in 2011 collecting donations for UNICEF after the big tsunami in Japan. She’s also done various stuff with the Pirates wives over the years, and I’m guessing she’s good friends with a lot of them who’ve been able to stick around as long as she has. At a certain point after you’ve put down roots, it must be a real drag to have to move. I feel like living in the home town of the sports team you play for is sort of a necessity, however. That’s just the baseball life.
