It is believed that Wendi got her passion for the sport from her father Wayne Nix.
As far as we know, Wayne Nix was a high school football coach and sports director. Wendi once told us that her first memories lie on and around a football field with her father.
“…I am six years older than my brother, so as a young coach with only one kid, my Dad brought me along to practice.”
Wendi has individually described her family as an athlete. She said that both her parents attended their high school games even when her father left coaching.
According to her, Wayne Nix “played golf in college and is an avid golfer.”
Wendi Nix Husband/Affair
The former general manager of Boston Red Sox, Ben Cherington, was Wendi’s husband. It is said that Wendi and Ben met at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. They were interested in each other, fell in love and finally decided to become life partners.
In 2010, Wendi Nix confirmed that she and Ben were no longer married. Whatever destroyed the marriage, Wendi and Ben are best known.
Since Wendi and Ben separated, their fans have always wanted to know what’s going on with their love life. She is believed to have married another man, but the man’s identity is largely unknown.
