Mike’s first wife, Susanne, is now the wife of his teammate Fritz Peterson. Back in 1972, Mike and Fritz had a switch of wives and eventually traded families. The swap which rocked seventies baseball unfortunately didn’t work for everyone but it certainly has been a good thing for Susanne, who has been married to Fritz since 1974.
Before the scandalous wife-swap took place, Mike and Susanne lived in New Jersey. They had two lovely children together.
