Robbie Ray’s wife Taylor Ray showed up in a Arizona Republic article in August of 2015. The article revealed quite a lot about the couple and their relationship. It explained the difficulty in their life when Robbie’s teams traded him constantly. The relationship continued long-distance because it had to. They began to live together in Reno when Robbie played for the Diamondbacks minor team. Then they moved to Phoenix after he secured a stable spot on the roster. When he did, it became a big boon for the family. It meant a solid paycheck!
The couple met in 2012 at a birthday party in Nashville. According to the article mentioned above, she thought he was a pro soccer player. Taylor once tried to establish a music career in Nashville in those early years. That’s a difficult thing to do, for sure. She chose to follow Robbie and give up her music career when they moved from Nashville to Grand Rapids. They made very little money because the salaries for minor league baseball players are miniscule. The couple is friends with Daniel Hudson and his wife. Robbie Ray’s wife explained that her friends are sort of predetermined since all the player wives and girlfriends congregate at the games.
Robbie Ray’s wife gave birth to their first child in December of 2015. They named their son Asher. He struggled to maintain his pitching spot on the Diamondbacks and needed to stay to bring home the bacon for his new son. Back in the days of Grand Rapids, Robbie and Taylor didn’t know if Robbie would ever get the chance to fight for a Major League spot. Now, at the age of 25, he is succeeding. Taylor herself tries to stay out of the social media limelight, but she seems to shine for interviews about their relationship. She said she received a lot of advice from veteran baseball wives. Take it day by day, they told her!
