Red Sox GM Ben Cherington gets married

It’s not all bad news for Ben Cherington. While the Red Sox general manager can’t be happy about the home team’s slow start, his personal life is certainly looking up.

We’re told Cherington and his fiancée, Tyler Tumminia, made it official on Friday, getting married in New York while the Sox were in Detroit. (It was an off day, so Cherington didn’t have to miss a ballgame.)

Like the Sox bullpen, details of the couple’s courtship are sketchy. But this much we know:

Tumminia is a marketing executive at the Goldklang Group, a sports entertainment consulting and management firm. The company’s web site describes her as a “sought-after speaker” who in 2011 was named “executive of the year” by New York University’s sports management program.

That same year, according to the web site, she also completed MLB Scout School, which trains people to evaluate prospective ballplayers. Before joining Goldklang, Tumminia, a graduate of Mount Saint Mary College in Newburgh, N.Y., worked in public relations at Boston area firms Morrissey & Company and EMT Corporation.

It’s not clear if Tumminia, who currently lives in New York, will be moving to Boston.

Contacted yesterday, she declined to talk to us. Cherington — who became the Sox GM after last season when Theo Epstein bolted for the president of baseball operations post with the Chicago Cubs — also would not comment.

Cherington was previously married to Wendi Nix, the former Channel 7 weekend sports anchor who now works for ESPN.
