If you’ve been around here for a while you probably have trouble keeping up with where I’m living. In the past year I have lived in Wisconsin, Florida, Arizona, Wisconsin, Florida, and now Alabama.
This leads me to someone I’ve been meaning to tell you all about: My fiancé, Casey.

this is Casey, how I know him:
This is Casey, how everyone else knows him:
Casey is a professional baseball player in the Tampa Bay Rays organization. If we’re Instagram friends you might have noticed some of my pictures hinted towards this but I’ve never come out and said it here on the blog.
Casey was the Tampa Bay Rays first round draft pick in 2014 (20th overall pick). He is still in the minor leagues, which means he switches teams a lot, and that means we move around a lot. Currently he’s playing with the Rays AA-affliate, the Montgomery Biscuits.
Casey is the most normal, humble, caring person I have ever met. While he’s a great baseball player, I don’t typically think of “baseball player” as a way to describe him. Baseball is his job, not who he is or what even begins to describe him as a person.
sometimes people want to ask him things
sometimes he’s on my tv
and sometimes people want his autograph
I’ve always been told that you should write what you know. I know a lot about the professional sports world. From the stand point of having a career in sports and from having a significant other who is a Pro-Athlete.
I guess I’m telling you all this because:
1) I want to be honest with you
2) I think there’s a lot of misconceptions about professional athletes
I want to be able to shed some light on the pro-sports world for those who are confused, mislead or just don’t know what to think about it.
