Meet 32-year-old Meghan Ellen Fryer or Meghan Baker, the lovely wife of Cubs catcher, John Baker! Her hubby is on fire right now; the 33-year-old Alameda, Cali born and 6-year veteran Baker, picked up his first career win, coming in as an emergency reliever in the top of the 16th inning of the Cubs’ 4-3 marathon win over Colorado.
Then in the bottom half of the inning, Baker walked and scored the game-winning run on a Starlin Castro sacrifice fly to right field. The six-hour, 27-minute game was the longest in team history.
Reports say that Baker is the first position player ever to be credited with a victory for the Cubs, who have been playing ball since 1876! In celebration, teammates showered Baker with beer, chocolate milk, hair gel, shampoo, body wash and more beer, he said via MLB.com:
“Best shower I’ve ever taken,” Baker said.
