Our first nominee for Baseball’s Hottest Wives 2010 is Johari Smith, fiancee of Ballparkbob’s favorite player, Jimmy Rollins.
Johari Smith was raised in East Mount Airy, Pennsylvania and graduated from Germantown Friends Academy in Philadelphia. Johari’s education background is as impressive as Rollins’ athletic background; she is a graduate of the University of Virginia and Howard University.
When it comes to athletics, Smith can keep up with the 2007 MVP, Rollins. She was on the track and cross country teams in high school and is a certified personal trainer. She is the owner of Balance, a personal training gym in the upscale Chestnut Hill section of Philly.
The couple has two Akita dogs and Johari says Jimmy loves to train the dogs and is very patient with them (as opposed to some of his critics who suggest he should be more patient at the plate). Johari also says that Jimmy is a master of the grille and cooks a perfect steak.
Johari met Jimmy when she was working as an intern in the ticket sales department for th Phillies. They plan to marry in January in the Cayman Islands. Hence, Johari will be officially eligible for the 2010 Baseball’s Hottest Wives contest.
