Boston Red Sox pitcher Chris Sale has been one of the most feared left-handers in baseball since his days with the Chicago White Sox. Sale throws incredibly hard, and with such pinpoint accuracy, it leaves opposing batters dazed and confused.
While Sale has been on the mend from Tommy John surgery and has yet to play for the Sox in 2021, the entire fan base eagerly awaits his return to the mound.
But no one wants to see the lefty back on the field more than Sale’s loving wife, Brianne.
Chris Sale’s Wife Brianne Sale
Christopher Allen Sale has been married to his wife Brianne Aron Sale since 2011, having tied the knot at a ceremony in Fort Myers. The pair met in college while at Florida Gulf Coast University, where Sale played college baseball under coach Dave Tollett, and they have been inseparable since.
Sale and Brianne have three children together. They welcomed their first child, son Rylan Sale, while they were still in college, and they have since had two more sons, Brayson and Camden.
Both Sale and Brianne are Florida natives. Sale grew up in Lakeland and attended Lakeland Senior High School. While Sale played professional ball in Chicago, Brianne stayed home in Florida to complete her degree from FGCU.
