Ryan Vogelsong Driven by Wife Nicole on Improbable Comeback to Big Leagues (Photos)The saying goes that behind every great man is a great woman. That sentiment couldn't be more true in the case of Ryan Vogelsong and his wife, Nicole.

The two have been married for only six years, but they have endured the many emotional highs and lows that come with being a professional athlete.

Vogelsong, now the No. 3 man in the San Francisco Giants' rotation, started Game 3 of the World Series with his wife cheering him on in the stands. His time as a MLB pitcher comes after a long journey that included stops in the minor leagues and Japan.

Vogelsong's comeback to Major League Baseball will come full circle in Detroit, and Nicole couldn't be more proud.
