JT Realmuto Mother Margaret And Father David Realmuto
JT Realmuto parents Margaret Realmuto and David Realmuto come from a religious background.
Realmuto's mother Margaret is an accountant at MTM Recognition and his father David was a college baseball player at Southwest Missouri State. He coached his two older kids, Ryan and Amanda, in the same game.
The star catcher of the Phillies has been very public about his faith in Christ, and it is something that stems from his dad and mom. On her Facebook handle, Margaret can be sharing verses from Bible and sayings that may resonate with many athletic parents.
In one of her Facebook posts, Margaret shared a saying plastered on a white background: "There is a 0.0296% chance that your child will become a professional athlete. There is a 100% chance that your child will stand before Jesus. Get them to Church."
Margaret has been working at MTM Recognition for the past 16 years and comes from a family of athletes. Her brother, John Smith, is a wrestling legend and was crowned as one of the greatest American wrestlers of all time, having won two Olympic medals.
There was certainly a point when JT had considered taking up wrestling as a full-time sport but was later swayed toward baseball. And it might be because of how passionate his dad, David Realmuto, was about the sport.
In 2014, when JT made his MLB debut for the Marlins, the baseball couple was present at the LoanDepot Park to see their son realize his dreams.
