New York Yankees slugger Nick Swisher is finishing up September in style, nearly guaranteeing that the Bronx Bombers will push ahead deep into October. With Joanna Garcia in the stands, that's a very good thing. 

It's time to pay tribute to one of the most beautiful WAGs in all of sports and a lovely lady that will make the MLB playoffs all the more enticing. 

Swisher, the 31-year-old outfielder, is finishing up September the way Yankees fans had hoped, homering in five of the last eight games. 

Whether he returns in pinstripes next season remains to be seen, meaning the last sightings of wife Joanna Garcia at Yankee Stadium may take place in the next few weeks. 

Garcia is a 33-year-old who is known for her roles as Cheyenne Hart-Montgomery in Reba, Bree Buckley in Gossip Girl and now as Dorothy Rutledge in the new NBC comedy Animal Practice

Nick Swisher merely knows her as his wife. 

The couple had been dating since as far back as September of 2009 and were married amid All-Star players and celebrities in a ceremony at a Palm Beach resort in December of 2010. 

Everyone from Lance Bass from 'N Sync fame to fellow Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez attended, via NY Daily News.

 At that time, he had this to say about his new wife, via People Magazine

I think for the first time in my life, I have a woman who I could not be more proud of. We do such a great job really pushing the other one to do better and I think that's what you have to have.

If Swisher stays hot through the playoffs, Yankees fans can apparently thank Joanna Garcia for the added motivation.
