American professional baseball pitcher for the San Francisco Giants of MLB, Madison Bumgarner’s wife is Ali Bumgarner.
Madison is famously known by his nickname “MadBum”. Madison grew up in an area nicknamed “Bumtown” because so many Bumgarners have lived there over the years. He has won three World Series championships and two Silver Slugger Awards. He has also been selected to four National League All-Star teams and is the Giants’ strikeout leader by a left-handed pitcher in the San Francisco era.
About Ali Bumgarner
Ali attended Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute. The institue mainly serves students from Caldwell and Watauga counties. She has also worked as a former lifeguard for the city of Lenoir.
Ali graduated in 2008 from South Caldwell High in Hudson. She is the only girl out of the siblings.
Life of the couple
Ali grew up in the small town of Hudson, North Carolina which is not far from Hickory. Ali and MadBum are high school sweethearts. They have been dating from a long time. When they started dating, Madison was a star pitcher — and Major League prospect — at South Caldwell High School in Hudson.
The couple had a really low-key wedding. They took the wedding vows on Valenntine’s Day in 2010. The wedding was so simple that Madison wore jeans to the occasion. Both of them are very grounded and humble kind of people. It’s hard to find such people nowadays. Especially when you are a baseball star.
Home Sweet Home
Both MadBum and Ali love the rural lifestyle. Ali is especially outdoor kind of person. During the offseason they live in North Carolina and spend their days on a farm in Granite Falls, a twon in Caldwell. During the season, the Bumgarners live in a condo in San Francisco.
There’s also an incident which is worth mentioning here. One day during spring day Madison spotted a large snake, a rattle. He quickly grabbed an ax and cut it down into pieces. Ali, who is an expert field dresser, examined the snake and found that it had two jackrabbit babies in its abdomen. She took them out and noticed that they were alive. Ali brought the rabbit their home, nursed them until they became healthy, and then released them into the wild.
Such a heartwarming story! Not for the snake though.
Another interesting thing about the couple is that once Madison gifted a cow to Ali. We think that was because of their rural lifestyle. But this has got to be the most different gift in the history of gifts by a Major Leaguer.
Madison is definitely more mature than his age. He is a simple guy with a simple lifestyle. Ali totally compliments him. She is not the usual Baseball WAG hottie, but we know her to be a person of great personality.
