Meet Karen Burnett, the wife of newly signed AJ Burnett, pitcher for the New York Yankees. See photos and read a biography of Karen Burnett here.
Karen Burnett, wife of AJ Burnett, no doubt is happy that her husband signed with the New York Yankees, because this means she’s a little closer to their home in Maryland. You see, Mrs. Burnett hates to fly. During her husband’s tenure with the Toronto Blue Jays, his contract included eight round-trip limo rides per season for Karen to travel to Toronto. Egads, that’s about a 9 hour road trip one way.
Her hubby signed a five year deal with the Yankees worth a reported $82.5 million, which is a little bit more than the Atlanta Braves offered, and obviously Karen is probably thrilled that she won’t need to take part in a grueling 18 hour road trip any longer, as her ride to New York will only take three hours.
As a biography, not much is known about Karen Burnett. One site, The Blue Jay Hunter, claims that Karen was a former stripper. Again, this is a rumor. It is unclear when she and AJ married, but they have two sons, Ashton and AJ Jr. You can see a family photo of them here.
