Despite signing an extension with the A’s, Swisher was dealt to the White Sox early in 2008.The deal sent Gio Gonzalez and others back to the Oakland.A few months later, Loraine Garcia got a call from her daughter.“Oh, mom,” Joanna said of Swisher, “you’re gonna love this one.” Not long after, Garcia became the newest babe to join the bevy of beautiful young actresses on the arms of Yankees — Minka Kelly (Derek Jeter), Kate Hudson (A-Rod) and Cameron Diaz (also A-Rod).Supermodel Gisele Bundchen and New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady began dating in 2006, and three years later, were married in a private ceremony in Santa Monica, Calif.
A power hitter with excellent plate discipline, Swisher hit at least 20 home runs in each of nine consecutive seasons from 2005 to 2013 and reached 75 bases on balls on seven occasions in that span.
“Oh, I don’t want to deal with one of those actresses,” Swisher replied, according to Loraine.
Luckily, the friend was pushy — and a group date was planned, despite the protests.
Long-time MLB outfielder Nick Swisher has announced his retirement in a post at the Player’s Tribune.
