In the WAGS Atlanta episode “Peaches in the Big Apple,” Niche Caldwell has dinner with her mother Nikki Torian. Nikki tells her daughter who’s married to NFL football player Andre Caldwell, “I’m the original WAG, and I can teach you some things.” Sure Nikki has been divorced twice but that doesn’t mean she didn’t learn anything. She has some pearls of wisdom to throw at Niche, whether she’s ready to catch them or not.
Nikki doesn’t mention Niche’s father by name but she does mention that he was a professional baseball player who made it to the World Series. Niche’s father is Charles Hudson. He was a starting pitcher in Major League Baseball in the 1980s. After playing ball at Prairie View A&M in Texas (he was born in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area), he was drafted in 1981 by the Philadelphia Phillies. He started two games in the 1983 World Series as a rookie (the Phillies lost; the Baltimore Orioles won). Four years later in 1987 he was traded to the New York Yankees. At the time, Hudson told The New York Times he got a call from Lou Pinella just 30 minutes before the home opener, asking him to pitch. (Tommy John had the stomach flu.) The Yankees won that day, 11-3 vs Cleveland. Hudson finished his MLB career in 1989 with the Detroit Tigers. WAGS Atlanta airs Wednesdays at 10pm on E!
