Caleb Boushley’s parents, Karla and Brian Boushley, raised seven kids in Neenah, Wisconsin. Boushley comes from a Caucasian background and grew up as a Brewers fan.
In his debut against the Cubs, Caleb Boushley, at age 29, held his nerves. He made a 2 1⁄3 inning appearance, and though he gave a home run, Boushley also struck out five players.
The pitcher also received a special message from his childhood heroes, Ben Sheets and Geoff Jenkins, welcoming him to the MLB.
After his debut night, Boushley and his teammate Clayton Andrews have been optioned to the minors. But who knows, the pitcher might soon return to the side.
Caleb Boushley Parents: Where Are They From?
Caleb Boushley’s parents, Karla and Brian Boushley, raised the baseballer in Hortonville, Wisconsin. Boushley grew up with six siblings who were all present on his debut night.
In his post-match interview, Boushley said he had more than 400 supporters in attendance cheering for him. Karla and Brian were shown on the big screen while Caleb was being interviewed, and the pride on their faces was evident.
Karla and Brian are natives of Wisconsin, with Karla having graduated from Hortonville High School. The mother of seven kids, Karla is a receptionist at the dental clinic Smiles by Design.
Smiles by Design’s Facebook page gave a special shoutout to Caleb on his debut, with many writing they got emotional seeing the mother-son hug at the end of the game.
Karla and Brian have kept themselves away from social media, and so has Brewers’ new man. Three of Caleb’s siblings are available on Facebook but aren’t very active.
His brother, John Boushley, graduated from Hortonville High School and works as a Convenience Store Clerk at United Cooperative. Caleb’s sister, Tessa Boushley, is a traveling nurse at TotalMed Staffing and lives in Shorewood, Wisconsin.
He also has another sister named Claire Boushley, who is currently in a relationship with Luke Oberstadt. And if the baseballer had a more active social media presence, we probably would’ve had more details on him.
