PHILADELPHIA — Philadelphia Phillies starter Cole Hamels left the ballpark with his wife, a former “Survivor” contestant, who was in labor with the couple’s first child.
Hamels gave up four runs and seven hits in five innings against the Colorado Rockies in Game 2 on Thursday. He left after throwing 82 pitches and rushed out of the dugout when he was pinch-hit for in the fifth inning.
Hamels said this week his wife was due “any day.”
Hamels’ wife, Heidi, also posed for Playboy.
That is some cold shit, Associated Press! Not only does this item make Hamels look like he wasn’t focusing on his team’s playoff game…it calls his wife out for naked modeling at the end for no reason.
