What Phillies outfielder Ben Francisco and pitcher Kyle Kendrick have in common, besides new contract offers: new wives.
Kendrick and Philly restaurateur Stephenie LaGrossa were married Nov. 13 in California, while Francisco - who likely will platoon in right field with Domonic Brown next season - tied the knot with Cindy Lopez a week later near their offseason home in the Kansas City area.
Kendrick and LaGrossa met here in 2008. Francisco and Lopez met in K.C. in 2007 during his rookie season when his Indians played the Royals. Pitcher Cole Hamels and his wife, Heidi, attended the Francisco wedding.
