Exclusive: Yankee Nick Swisher Joins Wife JoAnna Garcia on ABC's Better with You

JoAnna Garcia has found her new hubby some work in his off season.

Sources confirm to me exclusively New York Yankee Nick Swisher will play himself in two episodes of Garcia’s underrated freshman ABC sitcom Better with You.

The arc kicks off during February sweeps when Ben (played by Josh Cooke) is involved in a mishap with Swisher during a home game. From that moment on, their paths continue to cross.

Garcia and Swisher tied the knot last month in Palm Beach.

Better with You, which has been picked up for a full season, returns from the holiday break with a new episode tonight at 8:30 pm/ET.

  • Just wanted to point out that Garcia plays Mia, not Maddie.

    • Jake Lacey is also Mia’s love interest, not Josh.

  • I love JoAnna Garcia. I agree with you that Better with You is underrated. The cast is outstanding. I’m hoping it will continue to find an audience. I’m skeptical that this casting stunt will achieve that.
