Corey Kluber parents Jim Kluber and Ellen Kluber raised two kids in Alabama. Jim resides with his wife Ellen in Massachusetts.

Born in Birmingham, Alabama, as Corey Scott Kluber, he is a professional baseball player who recently signed with the Boston Red Sox as a free agent in January 2023.

The 36-year-old, who primarily plays as a pitcher attended the Coppell High School, located in Coppell, Texas. Corey had aimed to enter the 2004 MLB draft however, due to the injury he suffered on his elbow while pitching, had him go undrafted.

Kluber then enrolled at Stetson University in Central Florida and was part of their baseball team, the Stetson Hatters. He initially operated as a relief pitcher before gradually becoming their ace pitcher. Having pitched 231.2 total innings, he registered 214 strikeouts.

Thanks to his exploits in college, he was drafted by the Padres via the 2007 MLB in the 4th round. However, he was soon traded to the Cleveland Indians. Now with the Red Sox, the three-time All-Star hopes to have a stellar season with fellow teammate Nick Pivetta.

Kluber grew up with a father who loved baseball and it definitely helped him grasp the game a lot quicker as Jim guided and helped him learn the game better.
