Gabe, Lisa Kapler to divorce?

TMZ reports that former Red Sox outfielder Gabe Kapler has filed for divorce from Lisa Kapler, his wife of 14 years. The gossip site noticed some strange things about Gabe's filing — including a request to have his maiden name restored — but Gabe, now a Fox Sports 1 commentator, explained to TMZ that he must have made a clerical error with the paperwork. He added that he and his wife "are best friends and will care for each other beautifully through this difficult time." The couple, who have two children, founded the Gabe Kapler Foundation to fight domestic violence in 2004, although the organization's website appears to be down. Lisa Kapler spoke to the Globe that year about how an abusive relationship she had in high school inspired her to speak out for the cause.
