Better Together

Introducing Our Baseball Life, a collaborative partnership between Lory Ankiel, Alysa Bajenaru, and Paige Murphy. We’ve taken all of our strengths, resources and talents and pooled them together to better serve this community together.

I'm Not Ready

The last thing I want you to do is look at me and think I always have everything under control. I’m still working this out day by day, just like you are. But because I am a veteran wife and have so many seasons under my belt, I want to be the first one to give you permission to approach this season from a place of truth, whatever that is to you. Please hear this: There is no one right way to do this life.

My First Fan Fest

The day before our Dodgers activities got rolling Matt was doing something ridiculous in the hotel room to make me laugh then he said, “Ten years ago when we started dating did you think we would be staying in a hotel in downtown LA and going to Dodgers FanFest tomorrow?” We both started busting out laughing like what is our life. 

Whole 30 Must Haves

In the end, it’s not about losing weight, it is more about learning what to eat to feel your best and fuel your body. You will experience tough and testing moments as your body adjusts to a new and better way of eating. Don’t think of those moments as challenges, think of them as your reward toward a healthier, happier life. 

WAGS Work: Linsey Marchant

Starting my own business gave us choices and freedom to make those choices with confidence. Regardless of his baseball career, I have this business to fall back on. I don't have the stress of a boss telling me when I can be with my partner. I get to be insanely proud of him every day, and I get to be insanely proud of myself every day.

It also feels nice to contribute and it gives me something to do. Baseball can be lonely sometimes when they’re on a road trip and you’re not with them. So instead of binging Netflix all day, I get to have fun, feel productive and make money! Talk about a win!

Back to Balance

I often find the focus of most baseball-related posts is on how much support the WAGS give their man, but I’d like to highlight the support I receive from my man during and after season. As many other WAGS have said before, this baseball life isn’t an easy one. You are in a committed relationship with not only your man, but baseball as well.  

Why We Love Capsul Jewelry

I love supporting my husband when he's on the field, but I often find myself paralyzed by the thought of ordering something new that might not be relevant tomorrow when he's on another team, wearing a different colored jersey and a brand new number. 

That's why I was so excited to find Capsul Jewelry.

WAGS Work: Tiffany Whoolery

Nick and I are in the middle of planning a wedding, which can be extremely pricy. This job has helped pay for just about everything with the wedding that my family isn’t covering and it’s been a true blessing. It will be nice once the wedding is over and all my extra income can go into savings or if baseball throws us a curveball, we still have my income to get us through.

It also feels nice to contribute and it gives me something to do. Baseball can be lonely sometimes when they’re on a road trip and you’re not with them. So instead of binging Netflix all day, I get to have fun, feel productive and make money! Talk about a win!

Sacrifice Hit

So in an endeavor to act out the word of God rather than just read it, I pledged to no longer ask when life would be all about me again. No longer refer to these amazing opportunities Christ has given me as 'sacrifices.' No longer wait for the day that I don't have to adjust my life to meet the needs of others.

We're in This Together

They understand this life and some of the struggles we have to go through because of baseball. They will be there for you as if they’ve known you forever. What I’m saying is, you need these girls! And they need you. You’re all in this life together and the support will be unreal.

My First Road Trip

This adventure has only just begun, but has already brought me to places I would have never traveled to otherwise. It has reassured me just how wonderful people can be, and has pulled me out of my shell entirely.

To The New Girls

It's draft week and that means it's time to welcome the newest WAGS into the family. We are so glad you're here, and we can't wait to meet you! Here are some welcomes and words of advice from your sisters in this crazy beautiful baseball life.
