With Detroit in the ALCS and Anibal Sanchez scheduled to start one of the games, I’m hoping that somehow, someway we get some more pictures of his wife Ana.
(born February 27, 1984 in Maracay, Venezuela) is a Major League Baseball right-handed starting pitcher with the Florida Marlins. On September 6, 2006, in just his 13th career Major League start, Sánchez pitched a no-hitter against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
Sánchez possesses a fastball clocked as high as the mid-90's, an above-average curve, a good changeup and a slider .
He was signed by the Boston Red Sox as an international free agent in 2001.
After playing in the Venezuelan Summer League for two seasons, Aníbal suffered an elbow injury that required surgery to move his elbow ligament, causing him to miss the entire 2003 season.
The couple married in 2011 while Anibal was still with the Marlins."We do care and we want people to be aware of it and care as much as we do."The Sanchez family will host 19 guests on select dates throughout the season at Comerica Park.The children and their families will get the opportunity to watch batting practice from the field, meet Sanchez and take in the game from his suite."The reason we wanted to get out there is to get other people involved," Ana Sanchez said.After the 2004 season, Baseball America named Sánchez Boston's fifth-best prospect, behind shortstop Hanley Ramirez, outfielder Brandon Moss, and pitchers Jonathan Papelbon and Jon Lester.By 2006, Ramirez, Papelbon, and Lester had all played in the majors; Moss was selected as the Portland Sea Dogs' most valuable player in 2006.He says he loves her new curves, and we see them holding hands and being very much in love frequently in the press.
