Love comes in all shapes and forms, and the partners have walked their own paths in their lives until their paths converged. In the world of sports, couples often share a deep connection through their mutual love for the game. Take, for instance, the heartening and fun relationship of Garrett Mitchell, a 24-year-old rookie for the Milwaukee Brewers, and his wife Haley Cruse Mitchell, a professional softball player for the USSSA Pride. 

In a recent game against the New York Mets, Garrett hit his first career walk-off home run, sealing the deal with a 7-6 victory for his team. While some may credit his success to his hard work, the athlete himself has revealed that the secret to the home run was something unexpected.

There’s nothing like a bit of playful ribbing between couples to show their love and adoration for each other. And it seems that Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Garrett Mitchell and his wife Haley are no exception. In a recent interview after his game-winning home run, the slugger quipped, “When my wife doesn’t show up to the games, usually something good happens. Going into that at-bat I was like, well, she’s not here, so I might as well do something fun!” 

Twitter was quick to pick up on Garett’s playful remark, and Haley couldn’t resist joining in on the fun. She teased her husband right back with a hilarious response, saying, “You won’t say it to my face tho.” 

But she didn’t stop there. She went on to post a picture of a meme of a disguise from Mean Girls jokingly suggesting that she might have to sneak into the stadium incognito to support her husband.
