On Wednesday evening, Corey Kluber won his second career Cy Young Award. Across the course of the 2017 season, he had an MLB-leading 2.25 ERA to go along with 265 strikeouts in 203 2/3 innings. His Cy Young campaign also included a 1.67 ERA and 15-2 record from June 1st until the end of the season. But who is the woman behind the Cleveland Indians' frontline starting pitcher? Here are a few facts you might not know about Amanda Kluber.

1. She met her husband at Stetson University

In addition to playing baseball for three years at Stetson, Kluber met his wife Amanda in college. The two got married in 2010, and since then they've had two children together


2. She and Corey run a charity called "Kluber's Kids"

During every Wednesday home game for the Cleveland Indians, the Klubers host a child from the Cleveland Clinic Children's Hospital. According to the Tribe's official web site, the child and his or her family get to watch batting practice on the field. The child also takes home a Kluber jersey and gets the opportunity watch the game that night from the Club Lounge. Sometimes the guests even get to watch Corey throw a bullpen session from the outfield!

The couple has even gone so far as to give playoff tickets to children. When the Indians made it to the World Series in 2016, the players each received two tickets. Corey and Amanda gave theirs to a young girl named Aly, who they met at University Hospital's Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital.

3. She's a huge Game of Thrones fan

Okay, this isn't necessarily specific to Amanda. Both the Klubers are hooked on the popular TV show; they do their best to set aside some time every Sunday after their girls go to sleep. Sometimes the two even watch it with teammate Lonnie Chisenhall (who has also read all the books), and his wife, Meredith Chisenhall.

"Introduce a little anarchy. Upset the established order, and everything becomes chaos. I'm an agent of chaos..."

Heath Ledger's Joker says this in 2008's The Dark Knight but it could also apply to the presidency of Donald Trump. From defying subpoenas, introducing sweeping policy changes to his own staff through tweets, fostering a revolving-door administration, abruptly deserting allies, and, of course, the ceaseless bullying.

The President and the Clown Prince of Crime have both been agents of some degree of chaos.

So it may not come as a surprise that the Joker joins the campaign of a Trump-like character in the latest issue of Dark Knight Returns: The Golden Child.
