Raul Ibanez's wife Tery Ibanez

To say the last week of Raul's life has been a little hectic might be a slight understatement. In the second to last game of the season Raul hit a pinch hit homerun against the Red Sox to help the Yankees stay on top of the division, which the Yankees would clinch the next night.

As Raul was celebrating he got a call from his very pregnant wife Tery (short for Teryvette). Despite her efforts to have the baby on an off day she was on her way to the hospital to deliver the couples 2nd boy and 5th child overall, Luca Gabriel. In game 3 of the 2012 ALDS, Raul stepped to the plate and hit another game tying home run. On this night however Raul wasn't done. Later in the game he would hit the game winning home run to give the Yankees a 2 games to 1 lead in the series.

Like we said,... busy week for Raul and Teryvette, huh?

The couple, who met in high school in Miami, have run the gauntlet of emotions when it comes to being a professional baseball family. It's fair to say that Raul has been a late bloomer. His career didn't take off until his late 20's. Due to that Raul and his family have had to switch teams consistently. His current team the Yankees are his 4th different team including two stops in Seattle. With the family never truly settled in one spot Tery, being a former school teacher, has home schooled the children. Even with Raul changing teams constantly one thing that has always stood out about Raul is how nice of a guy he is. In 2008 he was Seattle's nominee for the Roberto Clemente Award. In 2009 Raul was voted the second nicest player in all of baseball by players across the league. That coupled with the charity work that Raul and Tery have done in each city always has left a positive impression on the fans.

    Welcome back to Seattle to you and Raul and your family. Looking forward to having Raul back in the Mariners line-up and to help "school" our young players with his great attitude and work ethic. It will be great for him and the community to have you and the family by his side.

    Raul's always been a favorite of mine. I rooted for him (and for Jamie Moyer too :) when he went to the Phillies, and I'm not the only one. And I was glad Raul was with the Yankees to welcome Ichiro when he was traded to that team. I went to the first game after the trade and watched the two of them play catch in the outfield during pre-game warm-ups.

    Merry Christmas to you and your family! (and I hope Luca isn't keeping you awake at night too much!)

    What a terrific family! Thank you for sharing so much of your family with the public. We, the fans, could not ask for a better role model for our young . Our two grand boys watch the tv and join the chant "Ra-uuuuuuuuuuuuuul.! The eight year old was impressed the other night when he saw a clip that your husband had made. He was explaining a lesson his father had taught him. Basically no need to brag, when you do something good people will notice. We talked for quite awhile about letting your actions speak for you. Not too often in this day and age when we can look with pride at our sportsmen. Thank your husband for us for being a "true Hero" Loyal Fans in the Portland area, Harriet and Jim Soldani GrAND BOYS in Milwaukie, Oregon May God Bless your family

    Thank you for reading my email. Thou for being an outstanding wife in supporting Raul in his Professional. Raul is ultimate professional and I am sure that sure that speaks well for both of you. When Raul retires, I hope when he retires he will retire a Mariner. Your whole family was loved by the Mariner family.
