Shortstop, soccer star wed
"It was a really nice wedding, on a hill with an ocean view," said Garciaparra's aunt, Lulu Garciaparra, of Fontana, Calif. "It was a very beautiful day."
She said a few hundred guests attended the wedding Saturday in the coastal California community of Santa Barbara.
The wedding came a year after Garciaparra, a two-time American League batting champion proposed to Hamm, the top scorer in the history of the U.S. women's national team.
The two met at charity event in 1998 and started dating last Thanksgiving, shortly after Hamm divorced her husband of six years.
