Byron Buxton’s girlfriend Lindsey Tillery has a lot of packing to do. Why? Because MLB’s #1 prospect is getting the call directly from Double-A to the Show.
Byron Buxton is aged beyond his years. The 21 year old uber prospect is already a father, which makes his drive for baseball success all the more understandable. Byron Buxton’s girlfriend Lindsey Tillery gave birth to Brixton Scott Buxton in December, 2013. The family lives in a small town in Georgia where Lindsey says, “There’s nothing to do.”
Lindsey Tillery is three years older than the star center fielder of the future, having been a senior when he was a freshman at Appling County High School. The two did not get together until after school, and Lindsey claims to the Minnesota Star Tribune, to never know him.
I had heard about him but I never met him. I played softball, and my father knew all about Byron. We walked the same halls every day but never spoke. … I didn’t meet him as a baseball player. He was very quiet, but fun at the same time, always doing something active. He was funny, too, in his way. Then I realized, the more I got to know him, about his love for the game and how important it was to him, and because I played ball I respected that. We had a lot in common.”
Byron and Lindsey decided to kick things up a notch in September, 2014. Byron proposed and Lindsey said yes saying “I said YES, cannot wait to marry my best friend!”
Congrats to Byron and Lindsey on and off the diamond.
