Craig Kimbrel's wife Ashley Kimbrel seems fun.
Besides being a smokeshow baseball loving, charitable Southern Belle, Ashley can also toughen up and hang with the guys. The 2012-2013 offseason was an eventful one for the couple. After marrying on December 1, 2012, the couple took a relaxing honeymoon to the Dominican Republic. After returning home, the Kimbrel's embarked on a charity speaking engagement for Dr. Tommy John himself, Dr. James Andrews. During that weekend away, the Kimbrel's took a brief hunting excursion where Ashley took down an eight point buck.
Now before any animal rights activists judge too harshly, know that Craig and Ashley Kimbrel are incredibly charitable. They host many events for their favorite cause, Curing Kids Cancer. In November, 2013, they hosted Cowboy Boots & Cocktails where country star Cole Swindell performed for those in attendance. Ashley often tweets support of the cause and has shown a dedication to a clearly noble endeavor.

UPDATE 02/01/2014:Freddie Freeman's girlfriend? Nope, Chelsea Goff now gets the distinct title of Freddie Freeman's fiance.
On Sunday, January 19, Freeman took to Twitter to announce the news and included a picture of a sunset boat shot with Freeman down on one knee. Goff is standing clearly shocked, looking like 90% of women when that moment happens.
No word on when the wedding may take place. With the baseball season a couple weeks away, it's safe that they'll need to slough through another 162 games before tying the knot in the next offseason.
With the Braves having clinched their first NL East title since 2005, the question heading into the playoffs is whether their offense will show up. The pitching has been there all year, the bats have gone quiet far to often. The problem has certainly not been Freddie Freeman, who leads the team in RBIs and always seems to get a hit when the team needs it. Freddie Freeman’s girlfriend Chelsea Goff is proof that he’s lighting it off the field as well.
With some sleuthing, we discovered that Freddie and Chelsea have been dating since July 2011. It seems the couple took things slow at first, as Chelsea stayed in Florida until moving up to Atlanta in December 2012. Thankfully for Chelsea, her two careers translate most anywhere – real estate and modeling.
Coming up to the majors, Freeman understood what kind of lifestyle that most players lead. There would be women, alcohol, swearing… all of which clash with his religion. Freeman is a 6th generation Salvationist. Yes, the Salvation Army. With his faith backing him, Freeman was able to keep his focus on baseball and become one of the best first baseman in the majors.

Tim Hudson went down with a nasty injury a few weeks back against the Mets. While covering first, his foot was stepped on by Eric Young Jr and Hudson suffered a broken ankle. While this was a big loss for the Braves, the impact would be less so in a Hudson family softball game as Tim Hudson's wife Kim Hudson has some skills of her own.
Staring on Blitz Krieg, Kim Hudson flashes the leather at second base for her team in a local softball league. But that's not all she does. She is also a lawyer by day. We'll go out on a limb and say Tim probably doesn't fancy him a man of the law books, giving the household talent edge to Kim.
The Hudson's met while both attended Auburn. Kim tutored Tim and says they were friends about a year before dating. Kim Hudson (formerly Bruner) founded The Hudson Family Foundation in 2009 as a way to helps out children in need. The couple was married in 1999 and have three children (Kennedie, Tess and Kade)
