It's ok to talk about the hard stuff

I don’t know why some people are quick to jump to these kind of conclusions about our life, but I assume it has to do with stereotypes and a need to compare. I believe it’s important to continue to tell the truth, our lived-out truth, whether people understand it or not.

​The Baseball Life: You're Not Ready ​

To the girl that’s just starting out, You’re not ready, I can promise you that. You’re not ready for what’s to come and there’s absolutely no way to prepare you for it. There’s no way to explain how lonely you’ll be on the first road trip of the season in a new town with all your friends and family hundreds of miles away. You’ll start off strong and tell yourself, “I’ve got this.” And then on day 9 of the 12 day road trip, you’ll lay on the floor and question every decision that led you there and if it’s going to be worth it...

WAGS Work: Mary Dolan

In the nearly two years I have been out of college and working, I have grown so much from my career. I’ve become that much more confident and self-assured. I feel good about the work I am doing each day, and I also know that I am good at it. That independence and my own self-identity has been critical in my sanity throughout this crazy baseball life. One of the reasons Kyri fell in love with me was because of my ambition, just as I fell in love with his passion for baseball. Despite being so far away, we are each other’s biggest fans. I try to watch or listen to all of his games, and he calls on my way home every day so that I can tell him what I had been working on.

We aren’t crazy women out here all alone following our men around. We have made a commitment to someone who has a unique lifestyle. That lifestyle has molded us into extremely adaptable people, put grit in our spirit and strengthened our faith.

Baseball in Australia

After traveling to Australia, I realized I was very unprepared for the big move down under, so I talked with a few other WAGS on different ABL teams and we came up with a list of 10 tips/advice for future ABL ladies...

6 Tips for a Great Season

I have learned a lot from the past 3 years and am still learning. I look back and wish I had a “Everything a MiLB Girlfriend Needs to Know” guide or the WAGS blog but I didn’t have that then! So I’m so happy to have this platform to share some advice to all my fellow WAGS! Here are my top six tips for a great season...

WAGS Work: Jessica Wachowicz

I have learned that being a support system has nothing to do with proximity and has everything to do with patience, understanding, and unconditional love. We both know how it feels to be in high-stakes situations and how difficult it may be at times to overcome obstacles. My career experiences have helped me to understand some of the hardships he faces, and vice versa. We are incredibly supportive of each other and want nothing more than to see the other succeed. 

Top 10 Things I Love About Baseball Season

Happy Valentine’s Day! For many of us, this holiday comes with mixed emotions. While others are celebrating with their loved ones, us WAGs are either alone and waiting for our S.O. to FaceTime us, or dreading the impending report date that will take our guys away from us for the next seven to eight months. In fact, many of us are probably thinking something along the lines of, “I hate baseball.” In an effort to restore the love that Valentine’s Day is supposed to be celebrating, I am going to share my top ten reasons that I love baseball. 

WAGS Work: Chelsea Scott

Starting my own business has had a life-changing impact on our personal relationship. It’s given me the freedom to physically be with Robby and experience baseball life first hand and not via FaceTime. To be frank, it also gives me a purpose. I cannot image being consumed in the sports world without something of my own

WAGS Work: Chancelee Taylor

Starting my own business was life-changing. It gave me a purpose, a passion, a way to help provide for us, a chance for my husband to pursue his dream wholeheartedly, and a way to do it all together. It also taught me so much about myself—my strengths and weaknesses, it boosted my self-confidence, and helped me grow in so many ways.

Introducing the WAGS Love Partnership

Our community is a generous bunch, and we've heard from many of you who want to give back, dig in, and make a difference in the world. In this gypsy lifestyle, that can be challenging, especially when you're bouncing around the minor leagues. That's why we're excited to announce the WAGS Love Partnership.

Our Life in an Airstream

What the airstream means for us is that we can pick up our home at any time and move it with us, which is a luxury during the baseball season. We have everything we need here with us, and we don’t have to worry about apartment hunting and then buying or renting everything to furnish it. When we move for the season, we just hook up to the truck and drive to the next destination with all our belongings in tow. 

Travel Nursing: The Best of Both Worlds

The baseball world is exciting and challenging, and we wouldn’t have it any other way! But it can also be really hard for us WAGS to chase OUR dreams while helping the men we love chase theirs. There is so much sacrifice involved, but the one thing I didn’t want to give up was the world I love. Thankfully, with nursing I didn’t have to.

What's YOUR Normal?

Each of us have our own, unique version of “baseball life.” For those on the outside looking in, we seem to live the same lifestyle, so why do the choices we make look so different when it comes to how we manage it? It's easy to compare the thousands of ways we choose to live our baseball lives and question whether or not we are making “the right choices.” But here’s a little secret, no matter how different our choices may seem, we're all making the “right choice” when it comes to how to live this life.
