Who is Ali Saunders?

Ali Saunders was born in Hudson, North Carolina USA, and so holds American nationality; the exact date of her birth is not known, but is believed to be in 1989. She and is best known for being the wife of Madison Bumgarner, a famous baseball pitcher.

Early life and education

She spent her entire childhood in Hudson with her parents and is said to have several brothers – after she matriculated from Caldwell High School, she enrolled at Caldwell Community College and Institute and began working soon after she graduated.

Even though she became somewhat famous and the media wanted to know more about her, Ali decided to keep the things regarding her parents and her early life to herself.


Ali Saunders used to work as a lifeguard in the city of Lenoir but whatever she does, it seems that she will always be in the shadow of her husband’s baseball career – he plays for the San Francisco Giants in Major League Baseball (MLB). They’ve been dating ever since Madison launched his career in 2007, and have been together ever after – Ali is also known to be a very good field dresser, and has designed costumes for the “Gun” short movie shot in 2006.

Ali Saunders and Madison Bumgarner

The two first met at Caldwell High School as they were both studying there – after they’ve been dating for several years, the couple decided to exchange their wedding vows on the Valentine’s Day in 2010. They had quite a simple wedding and Madison was even said to be wearing jeans during the ceremony – it seems that those kind of things are not important at all regarding the fact that the couple is apparently happily married nine years later.

Ali and Madison seem to be enjoying staying in nature rather than in the city, as they bought a farm in North Carolina and are living there during baseball off-season time, while they spend their time in a condo in San Francisco during the season – Ali was already known as a person who loves spending time outdoors. She once managed to save a rabbit which was being eaten by a snake – she is a big animal lover, if you don’t count snakes.

Who is Madison Bumgarner?

Madison Kyle Bumgarner, better known as “MadBum”, was born in Hickory, North Carolina on 1 August 1989, so under the zodiac sign of Leo and holds American nationality. Madison is popular for being the San Francisco Giants professional baseball team’s pitcher in the Major League Baseball (MLB) – he managed to win three WSC (World Series Championships) in 2010, 2012, and 2014 with the team, and two Silver Slugger Awards in 2014 and 2015. Madison was chosen to be part of four National League All-Star teams, while he holds the place of the second most-strikeouts pitcher in history of left-handed Giants’ pitchers.

Madison grew up in a log house which his father built, and used to sleep in the loft – apparently the first word which he spoke was “ball”, and he was already playing baseball when he was four. His father divorced his mother while Madison was still attending high school – he has one step-sister and two half-brothers; he had a half-sister named Dena who died in 2010 when she overdosed on pain medications by accident after she was hospitalized for cancer treatment.

Madison began playing baseball while attending South Caldwell High School – his team competed in the 2007 4A State Championship, and it is said that Madison led them to victory. As soon as he matriculated from high school, he was picked up by the San Francisco Giants, and so decided to pursue his career of a baseball pitcher rather than enroll at college. His career started off really well as he won the South Atlantic League pitching Triple Crown during his first year of professional playing in 2008. He became the youngest left-handed pitcher to begin a Worlds Series game when he managed to pitch six out of eight scoreless innings during Game 4 in the 2010 World Series – he continued the great score in the 2012 World Series when he pitched seven scoreless innings during Game 2. Today, he is known for winning three World Series Championships during five years with the Giants.

Due to his amazing talent and great skills, Madison has won numerous awards and honors, as he was named the Most Valuable Player of the 2014 World Series, won the Babe Ruth Award, was named the Sportsman of the Year by the “Sports Illustrated” magazine and Associated Press Male Athlete of the Year, all in 2014.

Appearance and net worth

Ali’s current age is not known since she hasn’t shared her date of birth with the public but she is said to be around the same age as Madison which is 30. She has long blonde hair, dark brown eyes, and her height and weight are not known, although she is considered to be one of the best looking wives of sportsmen.

According to authoritative sources, Ali’s current net worth is estimated to be close to $500,000 while her husband’s net worth is over $5 million.

Social media presence

Ali doesn’t seem to be very active on social media platforms – she has an Instagram account with nearly 1,000 followers and around 470 posts, but the account is set on private meaning that you will have to follow her if you want to check out her photos. She has a Facebook account as well, on which she seems to be more active than on Instagram.

Madison used to be active on social media platforms, but now seems to prefer to stay away from the Internet – he launched his Twitter account in June 2016, and gathered around 80 followers while he only tweeted three time before he stopped using it. He doesn’t have an Instagram account but there is a fan-based one with nearly 300 followers and nine pictures on it. His Facebook page is followed by nearly 45,000 fans.


Ali Saunders is not to be confused with the 58 years old Alison Saunders, who is a British barrister and a former Director of Public Prosecutors.
