TikTokers, actors and athletes took to the baseball field last night to play in the MLB All-Star Celebrity Softball Game. Tensions were high as everyone was in it to win it. Fans loved seeing YouTuber Jojo Siwa and rapper Quavo playing, but also to see renowned softball player Jennie Finch return to the field. However, fans are wondering what her life has been like since her retirement in 2010, and are asking – who is Finch’s husband Casey Daigle?

Meet softball legend Jennie Finch

Jennie Finch was born in La Mirada, California, on 3 September 1980, and is 40 years of age.

Growing up she was incredibly close to her parents, Doug and Bev Finch, as well as her two older brothers. Finch started pitching at the age of eight, and started playing for a team when she was ten.

Her impressive height, 6ft, helped her to become one of the top names in American softball.

Finch attended the Athens Olympics in 2004, and won gold with Team USA. In 2005 she played for the Chicago Bandits and in 2008 won silver at the Beijing Olympics, just missing out in the final game.

She now has her own softball academy in Flemington, New Jersey, and is incredibly passionate about promoting young women’s access to sport, saying:

“I see young girls carrying around baseballs and softballs, that’s what it’s all about. It’s about growing the game, impacting these young girls at a grass-roots level and growing both games.”

Jennie Finch is thought to have a net worth of about $1.5 million.

Who is Jennie Finch’s husband?

Jennie Finch is married to former baseball player Sean Casey Daigle. He was born on 4 April 1981 in Lake Charles, Louisiana, and is 40 years old.

His passion for baseball started at school in Sulphur, Louisiana. He was previously a Major League Baseball pitcher for the Arizona Diamondbacks, the Minnesota Twins, Texas Rangers, Houston Astros and San Franciso Giants from 2004 to 2011.

Casey Daigle is thought to have a net worth of about $1 million.

Who won the MLB celebrity softball game?

Todd Heldon and his team won at Coors Field last night, just beating Jennie Finch’s side.

However, more importantly, everyone had a brilliant time, and fans loved the game.

Finch said about the MLB event:

“It’s one of my favourite events of the year I look forward to. I couldn’t be more thrilled to see people I haven’t seen in a while, to see crowds, to see fans. Denver is a beautiful place to be right now, too.”
