This article was last updated by on

The former American baseball player, Chris Getz, married his wife, Nicole Korinek, on January 28, 2012. They together share three kids- two daughters and a son.

Belonging to the same state, Chris initially attended Wake Forest University for his undergraduate degree, while Nicole went to Michigan State University.

A year later, Chris transferred to the University of Michigan, where Korinek had also enrolled for her Master’s degree. So, they most probably met each other during their college years.

Christopher Ryan Getz, better known as Chris Getz, is currently the assistant general manager for the MLB’s Chicago White Sox.

He has looked after the club’s minor-league operations and player development program for the past seven years.

Amidst the new development involving the firing of the White Sox Vice President and general manager, the media is speculating that Chris could be the new GM of the club.

Similarly, Getz’s friend Dayton Moore is expected to join him in the new team.

Fed up with their bad performances over the years, the White Sox chairman Jerry Reinsdorf fired both V.P. Williams and GM Rick Hahn on August 22.

The couple now has three kids: two daughters and a son. However, there is little information about their little ones, as they are not active on any social media and prefer keeping their private life away from the public view.

In 2013, Chris’s wife, Nicole Getz, nicknamed Nicky, participated in the American reality TV show The Amazing Race.

Partnered up with another baseball player, David DeJesus’s wife, Kim, Nicky traveled across different countries in Europe and South America before eventually getting eliminated in the sixth episode.
