Phillies second baseman Chase Utley may or may not get that MVP everyone is always predicting for him, but he is already the MVP of Jen Utley’s heart, so he’s not doing too badly.

Chase married the former Jennifer Cooper, a San Francisco native with family ties to the Philadelphia area, back in January of 2007, but the two actually met when they were both students at UCLA. In an ironic twist, given Utley’s later career in Philadelphia, they were actually introduced by former Eagles wide receiver and lightning rod Freddie Mitchell, who was friends with Chase and freshman-year dormmates with Jen.

A noted animal lover, Jennifer helps sponsor drives to adopt homeless Pets each year at Citizen’s Bank Park with the other Phillies wives, and indeed you can hardly find a picture on the internet of Chase and Jen where they aren’t holding dogs or puppies.

    I love how guys like Doug always gotta show up and claim these gorgeous women aren’t hot. Doug, send me a pic of your girlfriend!! She must be retina-burningly beautiful if Jen Utley doesn’t do it for you.

  6. Doug’s probably more into Chase.

  9. Elizabeth says:

    The girl is definitely cute; she doesn’t need to be compared to Megan Fox. She also has a huge heart advocating for the animals! Go Jen!

  10. Jen Utley is a personal favorite. She’s got the girl next door thing going on which is hotter than any of the fake blonde baseball wives. Yet another area Chase Utley excels in.

  11. where’s her wedding ring in that last pic?
