Famous American Major League Baseball player, Mark Teixeira, just made an eight-year ($180 million) deal with the New York Yankees. Mark reveals who really convinced him to go through with it was his wife Leigh Teixeira.
Mark says: “Two weeks before Christmas, I talked to [my wife] Leigh about it again, and we kind of decided that, hey, the Yankees are where we want to be. Cash [Brian Cashman] might want to give Leigh a hug, because when I asked her during the process, ‘Where should I go, where should I go?,’ she’d always say, ‘I just want you to be happy.’ Finally she said, ‘I want you to be a Yankee,’ and it was a done deal.”
Guess who is the real boss?? I think Leigh might have to become Mark’s manager from now on – she really knows best. Behind a great man, there’s always a great woman… and she needs to take the lead sometimes. It was one of Mark’s dreams to play for the Yankees so Leigh just gave him the push he needed!
