Madison Bumgarner, the Giants' superstar lefty and Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year, told SI that he once dated a lady named... Madison Bumgarner.

Madison Bumgarner (the pitcher) is from a small town in North Carolina that's nicknamed "Bumtown" due to the number of Bumgarners who live nearby. In his SI profile, Madison Bumgarner (the pitcher) makes sure to mention there were no family ties between him and the other Madison Bumgarner. "No relation, I'm sure of it."

Madison Bumgarner (the pitcher) is now happily married to his wife Ali (not pictured, that's Buster Posey).

Sports Illustrated confirmed the longtime rumor that Bumgarner bought his wife Ali a cow just before the wedding, to which he wore jeans.
