Jessica Bassitt and Chris Bassitt’s Relationship and Kids
The Chicago White Sox selected Chris Bassitt in the 2011 MLB draft. While he was playing summer ball in the Coastal Plain League, he met college student Jessica Bolton.
Jessica was visiting her roommate’s family in a town in North Carolina not far from her college. She and her roommate attended the baseball game where Chris was playing.
In an Instagram post about their relationship journey for OurBaseballLife.com, Jessica wrote: “We may have been the only girls there over the age of 15, and Chris and a teammate wrote their numbers on a ball and had the bat boy bring it up.”

Jessica and Chris communicated throughout the summer and hit it off. She was with him through every career high and low.
In 2016, when Chris took time off to recover from an injury, they took a trip to Napa Valley. It was there that he proposed to her and she said yes.
They married on November 18, 2017. The now-Jessica Bassitt had already gotten used to the MLB WAG life that involved moving to wherever Chris got his new contract.
The couple welcomed their first child, a girl they named Landry Jayne Bassitt, on September 4, 2019. You can catch a glimpse of little Landry on her mom’s Instagram.
When the COVID-19 pandemic suspended most sporting events, including the MLB season, the Bassitt family stayed in North Carolina. Chris enjoyed spending time with his wife and newborn daughter and being there for all of Landry’s milestones.
But as the MLB returned, Chris also joined the Oakland A’s a little reluctantly while Jessica and Landry stayed in Ohio. Bassitt was sad about not seeing his family for months, but said that both he and Jessica are following all the safety measures to prevent their daughter and Chris’ teammates from getting infected.
