Ace Padian is married to James Click (born February 14, 1978), who is an American baseball executive who serves as the general manager of the Houston Astros of Major League Baseball. Sam and Nate Click are the names of the couple’s two children.
Before being hired as the Astros’ general manager in January 2020, her husband James worked for the Tampa Bay Rays for 15 years. In 2000, he also graduated from Yale University. Chaim Bloom, who worked with Click at Baseball Prospectus, tipped the scales in his favor.
