In a landslide not seen since the Nixon-McGovern election in 1972, Brooke Sorenson, wife of Philadelphia Phillies’ Laynce Nix, is the 2012 Baseball’s Hottest Wife.
It was Brooke Sorenson Nix’s first year of eligibility in the contest and she certainly made the best of it. Sorenson Nix received 25.7% of the vote in the 5th Annual Baseball’s Hottest Wives contest. The second highest vote getter was also an ex-DCC, Ann Lux, wife of Red Sox rookie sensation Will Middlebrooks, who came away with 7.3% of the vote. Returning champion Diana Roberts was third with 6.0% of the vote. Another ex-DCC (how do all of these football players let these cheerleaders get away?) Emily Kuchar Greinke, a regular in the Baseball’s Hottest Wives vote since ’09, was sixth with 5.1% of the vote.
Sorenson is an ex-Dallas Cowboys cheerleader. In fact, she was on the DCC squad for 5 years! Not sure how well that would go down in football crazy Philadelphia Eagles country. But, she apparently made a lot of great friends while with DCC.
During the 2010-11 football season, Brooke blogged about her upcoming wedding. She married the Phillies power hitting outfielder in the Bahamas last Fall. We have pictures here from the wedding which was in a spectacular beach-front setting. It sure looks like the guests had a good time, as evidenced by this video. And, if you are so inclined and weren’t invited to the wedding you can buy the couple a gift from Crate & Barrel; there’s still some stuff on there that they didn’t get.
