Meet Greg Maddux’s Daughter Paige Maddux Who Is into Philanthropy
American college baseball coach Greg Maddux made a prominent mark in the sports industry as one of the most potent pitchers. He garnered fame for his extraordinary skills while playing for the Atlanta Braves and the Chicago Cubs.
Thankfully, his personal life is as blissful as his successful career. He has been happily married to his long-time wife, Kathy Ronnow, with whom he has two kids — daughter Paige Maddux and son Chase Maddux.
Insight into Greg Maddux's Marriage
Maddux's marriage seems to be straight out of a fairytale. During his teenage years, he met his future wife Ronnow, as both of them attended Valley High School in Las Vegas, Nevada.
With time, their friendship fortified and blossomed into a relationship. And the pair left no stone unturned to strengthen their rapport. So much so, their love remained unwavering despite multiple trials and tribulations in the MLB player's career.
In 1988, the pair finally married with blessings from their family. They welcomed their first kid — daughter, Amanda Paige — five years after the wedding, on December 9, 1993.
That year, Maddux sacrificed top deal contracts to stay close to his family. The New York Yankees reportedly offered him $37.5 million while the Chicago Cubs were ready to take him in for $27.5 million with another $1.5 million in incentives.
But the coach settled for Atlanta Braves' $28 million deal, for the job would keep him close to his wife and daughter. Four years later, the married couple welcomed their second child, Chase, in 1997.
About His Daughter Paige Maddux
Maddux's daughter Paige is a philanthropist. She studied nonprofit leadership and management, and media studies and communication at the University of San Diego, California.
At 27, she already has considerable experience in her chosen field.

Paige joined San Diego Padres as a community relations intern in 2016 and trained for five months. Then, the young humanitarian joined the Rady Children's Hospital as a director of philanthropy in December 2016.
Since then, she has actively partaken in activities to help underserved people. She is also an active supporter of The Baller Dream Foundation, which aims to help cancer victims and their families.
Interestingly, Paige's family members have fully supported her career choice, and expectedly so. Maddux himself is a philanthropist who often donates and collects funds for campaigns.
And that's not all. According to his Twitter bio, 50% of his earnings from cameo requests go to the Rady Children's Hospital. True to his nature, the Texas native promoted his daughter's fund-raising campaign to support sick and injured kids on her 27th birthday.
While Paige chose a different career than her father's, her 24-year-old brother Chase has followed in their dad's footsteps. Like Maddux, the young athlete is also a pitcher at the University of Nevada, Los Vegas.
