The Washington Nationals confirmed that Trea Turner left Tuesday night's game at Citizens Bank Park after testing positive for the coronavirus, news outlets revealed on July 27. Manager Dave Martinez stated after the game that he couldn't comment on whether Turner has been vaccinated.

Turner, the team's great shortstop, took his at-bat in the first inning, singled, and scored on Josh Bell's three-run homer, but instead of celebrating with his teammates in the dugout, he sprinted straight into the tunnel as he was infected with the coronavirus. We had last reported that Turner was called out during a Houston Astros and Washington Nationals game last year when he interfered with Astros first baseman Yuli Gurriel.

Who is Trea Turner's wife?

Trea Turner has been married to Kristen Harabedian since 2018. The  American professional baseball shortstop for the Washington Nationals of the MLB met his future wife when they both attended North Carolina State. 

Harabedian was a gymnast while she was at North Carolina State. The Technician did a report on one of their games during an NC State gymnastics meet against West Virginia in 2013. A junior at the time, she scored 9.725 points, helping her team score a season-high 48.700 total points and maintaining the team’s lead for the meet by a margin of 0.175 with a score of 97.600-97.425.



 

 

She had also competed in high school gymnastics. Harabedian was the 2008 Central Jersey Section 2 Gymnast of the Year, according to Nj.com. Harabedian, along with fellow All-Staters Maria Bryant and Corrine Stiffler, led Hunterdon Central to its first-ever Sectional title in Hillsborough in 2008, when the trio, dubbed 'The Three Muskateers,' scored 113.8 points to win Central Jersey, Section 2 title.

Talking about her favorite event, Harabedian said to the news website: “Uneven bars. It’s my best event. I like the skills. I perform a pirouette with a high to low bar transition. Then a double-back dismount. I try to have a good warm-up so I’m confident before I go.” She began taking classes at Shields Gymnastics in Flemington when she was five or six years old. "It was challenging with something always new to learn," she said. At the age of nine, she went to Arena Gymnastics in Princeton and began competing. On January 18, 2010, she was featured by Faces in the Crowd in Sports Illustrated.



 

 

Harabedian married Turner at St Joseph's Catholic Church in Washington, DC in 2018. “St Joseph’s is more than 140 years old, and we felt its history and Capitol Hill location would create a really unique experience for our out-of-town guests,” Harabedian said about their wedding to Brides.com. The reception was held across three spacious floors at the National Museum of Women in the Arts. “When the reception was over, the DJ invited our guests outside for our sparkler exit, while Trea and I stayed behind,” Harabedian said. “Once everyone was gone, we had one last dance to ‘Marry Me’ by Train in the empty venue, taking a few minutes to let it all soak in.”

In February 2021, the couple announced the birth of their first child, Beckham Dash Turner. Harabedian took to Instagram to share that Beckham weighs six pounds, 15 ounces and measures out at 20 and a half inches. "You have turned our lives upside down in the best possible way! We love you so much little buddy 🥰" she added along with the post.
