Another Phillies pitcher, Cole Hamels, is having better luck. He and new wife Heidi Strobel barely had time to recover from honeymoon jet lag before flying off to Clearwater, Fla., for spring training the other day.
Theirs will be a commuter marriage for a while, says Strobel, who in June will get her second master’s degree, in secondary education from West Chester University. Her classes this semester are Mondays and Wednesdays.
The couple – he’s 23 and she’s 28 – met about 21/2 years ago at a minor-league game in Florida. Strobel, who appeared in the sixth season of the reality show Survivor, was at the ballpark that day to throw out the first pitch.
Weird. Amazon was definitely my favorite season of the show.
I just saw Stephenie Lagrossa from Survivor Palau and Guatemala at the Flyers game the other night and I guess she works for them. Survivor Fiji starts on Thursday.
