“I got a girlfriend and she’s cool,” Tucker said jokingly. “She’s awesome. I love her, but I don’t want to be treated any differently than Mitch [Keller] having his wife come down, or Ke’Bryan [Hayes] having his girlfriend come down.”
Tucker says that you might be seeing Hudgens around Bradenton soon as the Pirates continue prepping for the season.
If you're wondering … Yes, Vanessa Hudgens will visit Pirates spring training next month to hang with her boyfriend Cole Tucker.
And, no, Tucker's teammtes didn't give him a hard time by putting "High School Musical" on every TV in the clubhouse when he reported for camp.
