Yan Gomes' wife Jenna Gomes is a compassionate and pious young woman. The couple has a baby girl named Brooklyn whom was born in early 2014. Jenna Gomes is a graduate of Tennessee (thus explaining her commitment to Vols athletics) and she frequently tweets about how they're doing in various sports. She's also showed off the MLB season pass on her iPad that she uses to keep up with all of Yan's games. She's well-versed in what's happening in the MLB at all times. Based on the frequency of tweets about her husband's team and goings-on, I doubt she misses any games at all.

One fairly grim thing Yan Gomes' wife Jenna Gomes shared on her social media was a link to a religious article about a physician-assisted suicide and how it was "wrong." Of course, this is the kind of thing that annoys those who are secular and make decisions without the help from the Bible. Jenna was apparently concerned about Brittany Maynard's decision to take her life. Maynard was a young lady with a fatal brain-tumor that was causing unendurable pain and suffering for her, and so she went through with the suicide. This caused a bit of a stir and led some zealots to decry the decision. One is forced to question the compassion of essentially telling someone with a brain tumor to suck it up.

Jenna Gomes visits more baseball stadiums than most wives, but this may slow down because of their new baby girl. The pregnancy certainly didn't stop her from climbing a mountain-- an act that got her a lot of attention from fellow mountain climbers who were quick to give her all sorts of assistance and food. Outside of traveling with Yan to baseball games, the couple also travel to different cities for fun when he's not playing. Jenna has said the best thing about traveling to the southwest is drive-through Mexican food. Well, everyone's allowed to have an opinion.

Michael Brantley's wife Melissa Brantley had an understanding head coach help Michael to see his baby delivered in 2013. That was Terry Francona, and since Francona is known for excusing his players for this reason (since he himself missed the birth of one of his kids) it was no problemo.

The couple has since had a baby girl named Mariah and then another son named Michael (in February of 2015). The couple also have a son named Giovanni, who is Michael's stepson. Michael Brantley's wife Melissa Brantley is a full time mom in Ohio, but that doesn't mean she won't attend certain games. Brantley was an all-star reserve in 2014, and not only was Melissa and kids in attendance, but so was the rest of their family. That included Michael's parents, his sister, and Melissa's parents and siblings. It's kind of a big deal to a spouse and family when a guy gets selected for the all-star game in any capacity, you know? Melissa understands this too.

The couple will go to Arashi Steak House in Westlake, Ohio when they go out for dinner. It's a hibachi type joint. Michael Brantley's wife will make him Michael breakfast in the morning, and they'll eat and enjoy the morning together. Michael has mentioned that he usually takes a power nap in the afternoon and then ventures off to the ballpark to work on baseball skills in the offseason. It's a wonderful life now that Melissa is kicking it into overdrive taking care of so many little kids. She's pretty glad to have a husband who is a self-described family man because it means he's home as often as he can be. In the offseason he's always around to help out and raise the kids with her. There's some low-level speculation that they might start calling their new son "Mickey" instead of "Michael," but it's yet to be determined.

Corey Kluber's wife Amanda Kluber is definitely proud of her Cy Young award winning husband, but I still doubt it gets him out of baby duty tonight.

Kluber's wife Amanda gave birth to the couple's second child just months before Kluber kicked off his 2014 Cy Young campaign. And Amanda knows exactly how to tug at the voting public's heart strings. When Kluber was nominated for the final AL All Star spot in July, Amanda took to Twitter to use their children to beg the public to vote Kluber to the All Star game. Now ultimately, it didn't work, but you can't blame a gal for using what's at her disposal.

Amanda Kluber moved to Cleveland from the family's Jacksonville home in 2014. Amanda is originally from the Northeast, tweeting support and referring to Boston as "back home," following the marathon bombing tragedy. One might be able to point to some home stability to help Kluber become the best pitcher in the American League. In various interviews Corey acknowledges there's never really a break from mom duty for a traveling baseball player's wife, he relishes the time he's home with the family. The couple tries to carve out time for Game Of Thrones every week, telling Cleveland.com

"I'm a big fan. My wife Amanda and I try to set aside sometime every Sunday after the girls go to sleep to watch. The Red Wedding was intense. I didn't see it coming. Lonnie Chisenhall has read all the books so he knew, but I had no idea. I would like to say Tyrion is going to make it, but they kill off every main character. You've got to put your money on that.
