Please accept our apologies for extreme lateness, but we Ladies… have been busy with everything from final exams, to holiday shenanigans (shopping, parental visits, eating our weight in cheese), to dealing with ridiculous snowstorms as they muck up travel plans.
Yes, my friends, that is Rays outfielder Gabe Kapler.
Gabe’s 11-year major league career includes stops in Detroit, Texas, Colorado, Milwaukee, and yes, Boston. He was also a manager for Boston’s Single-A affiliate the Greenville Drive in 2007 (we’ll ignore that it was a losing season). He has resigned with Tampa for another year.
What lies beneath his socks? A Star of David tattooed on his left calf. Gabe has nearly a dozen tats.
Gabe’s career average is .270 (his abs are clearly 1.000). Ryan Braun’s former teammate had 8 HRs and 32 RBI for the Rays in 2009.
But more significantly, Gabe and his wife Lisa run the Gabe Kapler Foundation, committed to assisting victims of domestic violence.
Here is Gabe with his sweet family (YOU’RE WELCOME, MAGGIESOX!)
Hope you had a wonderful Hanukkah!
