My wife, Jenifer (Langosch) Segal, grew up near Atlanta and graduated from the University of Missouri. We started dating in October 2007, but lived six hours apart until July 2015. Four months after I joined her in St. Louis, we got married on Nov. 15, 2015. We welcomed our daughter, Audrey, on March 7, 2018.
Jen and I met through professional baseball. She was covering the Pittsburgh Pirates for MLB.com, and I was handling media relations for their Triple-A affiliate in Indianapolis. After more than 12 years as a baseball beat writer, including seven-plus seasons covering the St. Louis Cardinals, my wife is now a senior content manager for MLB.com. A love for sports and writing are two of the many interests we share.
But our daughter is the true love of our lives. As one who constantly moves and never stops talking, Audrey keeps us on our toes. She is Mickey Mouse’s #1 fan. She’s also a very good eater (big kid!) and terrific sleeper (thank goodness!). We are incredibly fortunate to have a happy and healthy little one.
Now, let me introduce you to more of our family…
