If there is one service that we here at UmpBump truly provide to the Internets, it is our relentless quest to seek out and honor Hot Baseball Wives.
To stay ahead of the competition, we have to remain on top of our game, so we have been keeping an eye on Red Sox ace Jon Lester’s girlfriend Farrah Johnson for quite some time now, but despite being engaged since last summer, until the two lovebirds tied the knot, she was not officially a baseball wife, and we have too much integrity to run posts on mere “hot baseball girlfriends” — which, I’m sure you will grant, are a dime a dozen.
But now that Jon and Farrah have wed, the time is ripe to announce our newest inductee into the hallowed halls of hot baseball wifery, Farrah Lester née Johnson.
Jon Lester met Farrah Johnson, a nursing student, at the start of the 2007 season when he was recovering from his offseason battle with non-Hodgkins lymphoma. Jon was initially quite upset when Sox sent him to class-A Greenville, SC to start the season, but he met his future wife there and even though he was only in South Carolina for three starts, the two hit it off and began dating.
One of the hobbies the couple enjoys together is deer hunting, which Jon introduced to Farrah, helping her successfully shoot her first deer in 2007.
The couple was engaged last summer and was married on January 9. And just because we here at UmpBump leave no stone unturned, you can even check out their wedding registry.
