The grandson of Hall of Famer and Triple Crown winner Carl Yastrzemski, Mike Yastrzemski has made a name for himself as an American professional baseball outfielder. He plays as a right fielder for the San Francisco Giants of Major League Baseball (MLB).
Although Mike has one of the most recognizable last names in baseball and has garnered fame with his playing skills, his personal life seems to be a mystery to most of the people out there.
If you are one of those curious to have an insight into Mike’s personal life, you have landed at the right place as here we have some information gathered about his love life, family, net worth, and many more.
Married Life: Who Is Mike Yastrzemski’s Wife?
Mike is in marital bliss with his longtime girlfriend turned wife, Paige Cahill Yastrzemski. He met the love of his life when he was eighteen years old.
When Mike went to Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, he met a freshman lacrosse player named Paige.

Later, Paige invited Mike and other several ballplayers to the lacrosse formal dinner in November 2009 where Mike was the only one to attend even after saying he wasn’t interested.
Recalling that day, Paige said,
"Mind you, I had a full-on crush on Mike. I was shocked that he was the only one coming. Later on that night, I said to him, 'I thought out of everybody, you wouldn't be the one to go. Then he gave me the smoothest line he's ever had, saying, 'I wanted everybody else to think it was awful because I wanted you to myself.'
This is how Mike and his wife Paige’s love story began. The couple was inseparable since then; Paige has been with Mike in the roller coaster ride of his life and baseball journey.
Exactly nine years after the dinner, Mike and his girlfriend Paige got married in a beautiful wedding ceremony in December 2018.
No matter what the occasion is, Mike never hesitates to exhibit his love for his wife on social media. Whether it’s Paige’s birthday, Valentine’s Day, their anniversary, or any other normal day, he shares pictures with his beautiful wife and state how lucky and proud he is to have her in his life.
Mike Yastrzemski is the grandson of one of the most productive hitters to ever play baseball, Carl Yastrzemski.
He was born to father, Carl Jr. (who went by Mike), and mother, Anne-Marie. His father played professionally in the minor leagues from 1984 to 1988. He even played college baseball for the Florida State Seminoles baseball team.
