A former softball player who went as far as representing the United States women’s national softball team in various competitions, Jessica Mendoza has remained relevant and popular even after she stopped playing the game for a reason that is not far fetched – she became a sports broadcaster.

For most people, Adam Burks is only popular because of his marriage to the Olympic Gold Medallist. While it would be ridiculous to deny this fact, it is imperative to note that the man isn’t a freeloader. He is an engineer and has been involved with various endeavors in the past. Although he is now a stay-at-home dad, it was a decision meant to afford his wife all the time she needs to accomplish her dreams career-wise.
