Meet Ali Connor
Ali Connor is the girlfriend of 31-year-old MLB player, Chris Colabello. Her man is a baseballer for the Toronto Blue Jays, who are currently one game under the Kansas City Royals. It can all be decided in tonight’s game 6 of the ALCS. Winning tonight would be the perfect birthday gift to Colabello, who’s birthday is tomorrow! October 24th.
You’ve probably heard Chris Collabello’s story but for those just checking in, here is some helpful info. Chris was born in Italy to a baseball-playing expat American father. He later relocated to Massachusetts and attended Assumption College in Mass.
He went undrafted and spent seven years in independent leagues. Chris played winter ball in Mexico in 2012 and in the Dominican Republic last winter. He reached the majors aged 29. As a result of his travels, he speaks fluent Spanish and Italian.
The Jays saw him as ideal Triple-A insurance. When he was called, he had just been honored as the International League’s player of the month. He was batting .337 with 18 RBIs and a .975 OPS, according to The National Post.
Colabello has been a revelation for the Blue Jays, coming out of nowhere to hit .321 with 15 home runs this season.
Like most MLB girlfriends, Ali Connor is super supportive of her man. It might also help that she is a fitness and outdoors junkie. Ali loves all things outdoors but this chick also knows a thing or two about sports. She is an avid golfer. From hiking to running half marathons, Ali Connor sure keeps very active. What athlete would like to work out with his girl huh! Plus, burning all those carbs can be very helpful when going out to nice dinners with your guy. They have been together for a few years now.
Not much more is known about pretty Ali Connor. According to her Facebook page, she attended Worcester State University in Worcester, Massachusetts. Her mother is Laura Connor and Ali has one brother, Ryan Connor. Her brother got married to Leanne Connor a few months ago.
