Meet Jarrod Saltalamacchia’s wife Ashley who is a smoking hot wife. Not only is Ashley Saltalamacchia a hot wife, but she also taught gym class at his high school. But where are the photos?
That’s right. Atlanta Braves prospect “Salty” married a teacher who is 14 years older than him. There is nothing wrong with that, in fact, more power to Ashley for landing a boy toy. But it does raise eyebrows that she taught at his high school while he attended it. Everyone wants to know if they slept together while he was a minor but they have denied it. She says that they started dating after his graduation.
Is he looking for a mother?
Ashley and Jarrod Saltalamacchia have split hairs and denied that she actually taught one of his classes directly. My recollection of physical education in high school is that there is a lot of group teaching going on. But let us move on from any unwarranted controvery.
She is in the news because on July 29, 2007 “Salty” was traded to the Texas Rangers in exchange for Mark Teixeira and CJ Wilson. Prospects Elvis Andrus and Matt Harrison were involved in this deal also. He has the longest name in baseball.
We know that Jarrod is 22 years old but Ashley’s exact age is difficult to assess. Various reports say that Ashley is 16 years older, 14 years older, or 10 years older. If the official university newsletter is correct which announced the birth of their daughter, she graduated from Stetson University in 1993. This means that Ashley was born around 1971, and would be about 36 years old today and that she is therefore about 14 years older.
So as a biography, we already know that Ashley Saltalamacchia was a gym teacher in high school. She also played volleyball at Stetson University where she graduated in 1993. The couple where married on July 12, 2005. They have a baby daughter named Sidney born December 27, 2006. Jarrod was born May 2, 1985 in Florida. They currently reside in Palm Beach Florida.
She teaches at Royal Palm Beach (FL) High School. The website is here.
Apparently her maiden name is Ashley Dale Perry or Ashley Patrick. Or perhaps she was married before. At one time she was athletic director/physical education teacher, girls and boys volleyball coach at Western Pines Middle School in Royal Palm Beach.
Here are excerpts from an interview with wife Ashley Saltalamacchia about her husband’s prospects.
“Huge,” said Ashley Saltalamacchia, who gets questions from students and faculty about how her husband is doing in his first major league spring training camp.
“They don’t even know me — it’s all about Jarrod,” she joked Sunday from the stands at Roger Dean Stadium, as the 6-foot-4, 230-pound catcher stood on the field, signing autographs for fans sticking balls and cards through the fence.
“I kid him that I have no identity anymore, that ‘It’s all about you.’ ”
“He doesn’t take anything for granted,” she said. “And he enjoys every minute. He doesn’t have a bad day. I was a college athlete and I’ve been a coach, and I walked off the court with my head down some days. He doesn’t. He knows tomorrow’s a new day.”
Photos below just as soon as we get them. Send one if you have it.
We are hot on the trail so come back later.
