Cody Bellinger’s Bio (Age)
The Dodgers’ first baseman was born on July 13, 1995, in Scottsdale, Arizona, as the middle child of Jennifer Bellinger and Clay Bellinger, a popular baseball player who played for the Yankees from 1999 to 2001 and spent four years in the Majors. After his time with the Yankees, Clay continued playing for the Anaheim Angels in 2002. He then moved to the Baltimore Orioles where he ended his career in 2004, although he did not make the roster. In addition to his baseball career, Clay is a volunteer firefighter and a real estate businessman.
Cody Bellinger is a product of Hamilton High School and has an older sister and a younger brother, Cole, who is also a baseball player. He is currently experiencing the best moments of his young career with the San Diego Padres, after being drafted into the team in April 2017 in the 15th round. Cole is four years younger than Cody and graduated from Hamilton High School in Chandler, Arizona. He led the school to the state championship and scored 6.2 innings in a 6-4 clincher against Phoenix’ Pinnacle High. Although we hope that this will probably happen sometime in the near future, fans of the Bellinger brothers are eager to see them play against each other in the big leagues.
Family – Mom and Sister
There is no doubt that sustained support from the family greatly strengthens trust and success in sports. For many athletes, it is one of the most important weapons for building a flourishing career, and Bellinger is no exception. The outfield player’s family has been a crucial part of his life and career.
His mother, Jennifer Bellinger, is a Cabi stylist, while his sister, the oldest of Jennifer’s three children, is named Ashli Bellinger. Sports-loving volleyball player Ashli Bellinger studied psychology at Vanguard University in Costa Mes, California, where she also played on the school’s volleyball team. She currently lives in Chandler and was a big fan of the Texas Rangers, but that has probably changed since her younger brother joined the Dodgers.
As mentioned earlier, Cody’s mother and sister are members of The Grove Christian Missionary Church in Chandler. While Ashli works as a large group coordinator for the Kids At The Grove and leader of the high school ministry, his mother serves as pastor of the children.
The baseball star allegedly dates a law student at the University of Texas-Austin named Melyssa Perez. Although it is not known exactly when the Los Angeles Dodgers and the beautiful Texas-born Friendswood began their relationship, the two lovebirds were spotted separately on the field.
The beautiful Melyssa Renee Perez was born Melyssa Renee Perez and is currently working as a volunteer for an American law firm that provides legal services to low-income immigrants in central Texas, called American Gateways. As indicated on her Instagram account, Perez stays in Laguna, California when she is not in school.
Obviously one of the players of the MLB with a good height, Cody Bellinger is 1.93 meters tall, which corresponds to 6 feet 4 inches and weighs 95 kilograms. As you can see on the field, the outfield player’s physique and formation have been a great help to his team and his successful career.
