Matt Adams' wife Carina Adams graduated from a law school called Widener University back in 2014, and she was married in January of 2015. Their wedding registry is one of the most basic and shortest ones that I've seen. There are twenty-four items on it, and only fifteen were fulfilled. This leads me to believe their wedding was not a very big event and did not have a lot of fanfare. Their marriage license was obtained on December 16, 2014, and their full named (Matthew James Adams and Carina Josephine Struble) appear on it. There are no pictures of the wedding on the internet, and there are basically no pictures of Carina on the internet either, though we do know a few things about the lady.
Matt Adams' wife Carina Adams grew up in Julian, Pennsylvania, and upon graduating from Widener University as a paralegal, she took a job at Torftrees Golf Resort and Conference Center working as a human resources assistant. I guess you gotta' start somewhere, right? Recently, Matt and Carina attended a ceremony at Matt's college of Slippery Rock University to retire his jersey. Carina is a big fan of dolling her hair up and using a lot of product in it, based on the photo of her at the ceremony. She looks like she had a nice time celebrating Matt's past successes at Slippery Rock.
The only other thing of interest that can be gathered about Carina is a car crash incident report from way back in December of 2007 one day after Christmas. This is back when Carina was only 19, and she was traveling with her older sister, Laurel Mae Struble. According to the report, they simply were driving too fast as they came upon a curve in the roadway. They lost control and slammed into an embankment, totalling the 2008 Nissan Altima they'd been driving.

Various media reports have indicated that Oscar Taveras and girlfriend Edilia Arvelo (who also went by Yamali Arvelo and Jamali Arvelo) have been killed in a car accident in the Dominican Republic, in front of the Coconut Palms Hotel Cabarete. Taveras' agent, Brian Mejia, has confirmed Taveras' death.
Taveras was reportedly driving from Sosua to his home in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic, when he was involved in the wreck. A Dominican newspaper, Listian Diario, has identified Oscar Taveras' girlfriend as Edilia Arvelo, only 18 years old. There are unconfirmed reports circulating that Arvelo recently gave birth to the couple's first child, but there have been no qualified media reports supporting this claim.
Taveras was ranked as the number 3 prospect in baseball according to Baseball America, saw his first look at extended big league playing time this season with the St. Louis Cardinals. He split time in right field, and was expected to be given full time assignment in the upcoming 2015 season. Tantalizing talent, and limitless potential swirled around the five tool player that the Cardinals repeatedly rebuffed when brought up in trade discussions.
Oscar Taveras was 22 years old.

Seth Maness' girlfriend Coleman Cox created a bit of a firestorm during Game 3 of the 2014 NLCS.
Maness, the Cardinals reliever came in to pitch a 1-2-3 ninth inning before sending the game to extra frames. In the next inning, the Giants won in walk off fashion on a throwing error by the pitcher relieving Maness, in Randy Choate. Pulling Maness was a questionable decision as many cardinal fans, including Bravo's Andy Cohen, took to Twitter to voice their displeasure with the decision.
It's no issue for a fan to go to social media to complain about their coach. Hell, I think it's what Twitter was invented for. But it does get weird when the player retweets a frustrated fan, challenging his manager.
Many Redbird fans were left scratching their heads at this move by Maness. Fortunately Seth Maness' girlfriend Coleman Cox was quick to end any controversy by coming clean:
@Andy that was me retweeting you on Seth's account... Me, being his girlfriend & to everything you tweeted I say "AMEN" #isntitironic #DRINK
Cox almost immediately deleted her account after the fact, likely from the heat of angry Cards fans, or Maness himself. Either way, the once formidable Cards fan Tweeter has decided that social media isn't the place for a player's girlfriend to publicly vent the feelings of the masses, no matter how right they may be.
