Freddie Freeman just agreed to a long-term deal with somebody other than the Braves. The all-star first baseman popped the question to his bikini model-turned-realtor girlfriend Chelsea Goff on a boat at sunset on Sunday (above and below).
Of course, she said ‘yes.’ Freeman’s engagement to Goff means the legion of jersey-chasing Southern Belles lusting after Freeman can finish no better than second-best. Sorry, ladies.
We just told you about Goff nursing Freeman after he had surgery on his wisdom teeth earlier this month. If a young lady puts up with your crap while you are doped up on pain meds, she has to be a keeper, right?
The next thing Freeman and Goff will celebrate together is the upcoming ruling on his arbitration case with the Braves. Whether Freeman gets the $5.75 million that he’s asking for 2014 or the ballclub’s $4.5 million offer, it will be a nice raise from the $560,000 he made in 2013.
You can congratulate Freeman and Goff on Twitter or go see him at an autograph signing at the Town Center Mall in Kennesaw, Ga. on January 28.
