Daniel Vogelbach met wife Kristina Vogelbach at a coffe shop where she worked. Daniel married Kristina on January 2022.

Daniel has been in a relationship with Kristina since he used to play for the Mariners.

Born on 17 December 1992 as Daniel Taylor Vogelbach to parents Dan Vogelbach and Jennie Vogelbach, he is an American professional baseball player native to north Fort Myers, Florida.

After graduating from Bishop Verot High School, Vogelbach enrolled at the University of Florida and played for their baseball team, Flordia Gators.

Aside from baseball, Daniel also played football and basketball during his time with the Gators. Having an elder brother, Josh, an athlete who played on international soil, inspired Vogelbach to pursue sports as his career.

Thanks to his showings in college, where he even hit nine home runs with a batting average of .551 senior year, he was drafted into the league via the 2011 MLB draft.

Vogelbah was selected in the second round by the Chicago Cubs. After spending a few years in the minor league, he finally debuted professionally in September 2016 with the Seattle Mariners against the Angels. Cubs had traded him and one other player in July earlier that year.

With seven seasons under his belt, Daniel has a batting average of .218 and has 67 home runs registered to his name, which is good for a designated hitter.

Currently, with the Mets, Vogelbach has been on an eventful ride as a professional and his spouse has been there for the most part to experience it all.

Daniel Vogelbach And Kristina Vogelbach Have Been Married Since 2022

Daniel Vogelbach and Kristina Vogelbach married on 29 January 2022 at Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort And Spa.

They recently celebrated their first wedding anniversary earlier this year. The amazing couple is one of the most good-looking and stunning in baseball.

Daniel and Kristina are not the only gorgeous couple who exchanged their vows in 2022, as Phillies pitcher Aaron Nola and his beautiful partner Hunter Jayde Harrington also tied the knot in 2022.

Daniel First Met Kristina At A Restaurant In Seattle

Daniel Vogelbach met Kristina Rucci at Cutter's Point Coffee, where she was an employee and he was a customer.

Daniel used to play for the Emerald City team, the Seattle Mariners, from 2016 to 2020. His time in the rainy city helped him meet his future spouse and partner.

During an interview with the New York Post, Daniel stated that when he saw her for the first time, it was as if he felt that he needed to talk to her.

The first picture of the two on social media dates back to 18 November 2018. Kristina had uploaded a picture of the two enjoying the nightlife and captioned the post, "love you forever baby."

Kristina was already a flight attendant by 2017, and the couple started dating when she was still at the coffee shop. Hence, we can say that the two were in a relationship for some time when the picture was posted.

In the interview, Daniel mentions that he and Kristina broke up in between after they had first started dating. However, the cute couple picked up their relationship and got back together once again, to the point, they're husband and wife now.

Vogelbach mentions that his family loves her. As Kristina is a huge family person, she quickly made a connection between herself and the inlaws.

Kristina makes him a better person, and Daniel states that he always felt she was the one for him, even when they had some problems in between. Also, Kristina is always standing beside him like a rock he can depend on.

Being the better half of a baseball player is challenging, and most people have to practice long-distance relationships more often than not. There are some chances the relationship could break down or not work during such cases, but Kristina puts up with him and tries to be there for him as much as possible.

Daniel proposed to Kristina on 24 December 2020 with a diamond ring in the neighborhood he grew up.
