Craig Counsell and wife, Michelle Counsell, share four kids, two boys, and two girls. The couple continues to live in Whitefish Bay, Craig’s hometown.
The Brewers manager, Craig Counsell, has been with the side since 2015. Counsell, with his wife, attended Whitefish Bay High School, and today the couple stands for the same initiatives.
The player-turned-manager, Craig Counsell, won World Series twice in his career, including one with Miami Marlins (then Florida) and one with teammate Mark Grace at Arizona Diamondbacks.
The couple’s two sons look ready to take the MLB by storm, with one entering the draft in 2024. Their daughters might not be interested in softball but have shown interest in other athletic endeavors.
With Counsell in his last year of the contract, the Brewers manager has been rumored to be looking for a fresh start with a new team.
Craig Counsell Wife, Michelle Counsell
Craig Counsell’s wife, Michelle Counsell, is his high school sweetheart. The baseball couple studied together at Whitefish Bay High School.
The better half of Craig Counsell has tried her best to stay away from the public limelight. She is available on Facebook but hasn’t shared a single picture since 2020.
But one thing is certain the better half of Craig Counsell loves supporting positive initiatives.
She previously partnered with Girls on the Run of Southeastern Wisconsin to teach girls to lead by example.
Michelle and her husband support the Fatherhood Initiative, the Urban Ecology Center, the Boys and Girls Club, and the MACC Fund.
In 2018, to raise money for Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities, the wives of Brewers and Cubs faced each other in an event.
The Brewers team was led by Michelle and won the game 10-3, with Michelle proving she isn’t bad at the job her husband does full-time.
In 2015, Michelle was featured alongside her son, Brady, in a Milwaukee Journal Sentinel video.
The mother-son duo talked about why they continue to live in Whitefish Bay, a place close to the couple’s heart.
They lived for many years in Arizona and returned to Whitefish after the birth of all four kids.
In the video, Michelle explained that her parents continue to live in Whitefish, and because of it, her kids can easily meet their grandparents and ride their bikes to school.
