Mitch Garver And His Wife, Sarah Garver, Began Dating In High School

Garver and Sarah have known each other since their mid-teens. On June 3, 2022, in a podcast interview with AWM Capital, Sarah Garver (nee Jogi) elaborated on her courtship with the baseball star and their journey to marriage and parenthood.

They were reportedly 15/16 when they met at La Cueva High School in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Even if they had met earlier in high school, it ‘was not until their sophomore year that the two started talking as they had a chemistry class together.’

As reported, the couple began dating on December 5, 2006. Like many teenagers, the two even had a couple of breakups but would get back together.

Mitch Garver was a two-sport athlete (soccer and baseball) in high school and led the school to a state championship as a junior. Even more, he got an offer for soccer at a European academy in the UK but turned down the offer to pursue a baseball career.

On the other hand, Sarah was already determined to become a vet and focused on academics.

After graduation in 2009, both attended the University of New Mexico and played collegiate baseball for the Lobos.

When Did Mitch Garver And Sarah Marry? Engagement And Wedding

Garver leaped into his dating story after he proposed to Sarah on December 5, 2013. Their engagement came after the Minnesota Twins picked him in the 9th round of the 2013 MLB draft; it was also Sarah’s last year as an undergraduate at UNM.

Starting in 2014, Mitch’s then-fiance (now wife) went to Carlson College of Veterinary Medicine in Oregon. As a result, the two had a long-distance relationship for a couple of years.

After two years of engagement, the duo married in Albuquerque, New Mexico, on December 19, 2015. Until that point, she was a grad student while Mitch juggled through minor baseball leagues, making little money.

During her interview with AWM Capital, Sarah opened up about their struggle with finances and navigation to a wedding in a limited time.

The scenario has changed drastically, as both have stable jobs and decent incomes.

Mitch made his MLB debut with the Twins on August 19, 2017. After five seasons, he was traded to the Texas Rangers, where he played two seasons with the Rangers and won the World Series in 2023. While there, he signed two one-year contracts worth $1.875 million and $3.9 million.

On December 28, 2023, the Seattle Mariners signed him on a two-year $24 million contract, which sees him $11.5 million each season (2024 and 2025).

Undoubtedly, his wife’s support during his days of struggle played a vital role in his MLB success. No wonder the duo is head over heels as they frequently mention each other on their social profiles.

In December 2020, the MLB player shared a throwback from his wedding with Sarah on their 5th anniversary and captioned, “Happy fifth year anniversary to my best friend and number 1 fan. We’ve been together for 14 years and getting better like fine wine.”
