Barry Zito has been dating the former Miss Missouri for a little over a year, and were engaged in April of 2011. Instead of wasting time (admittedly, like I did), the couple took care of the nuptials right away, and will be married on Saturday, December 3, 2011.
It will be interesting to see how Giants split this weekend, as OF Nate Schierholtz is getting married at the same time, to his girlfriend, former college basketball player at SDSU, Kate Eveland.
Like we revealed in the opening sentence, Amber is the 2007 Miss Missouri who now calls herself an actress. Her IMDB credits include one episode of daytime drama The Bold and the Beautiful, and a role in the movie The Change Up, where she is billed as "Beautiful Woman." Her next project should be easy to play, as "Amber the Actor," in the 2012 movie Starting from Scratch.
This might be the coolest story about a professional athlete ever.
The San Francisco Chronicle reported that Zito filed for his marriage license on November 18. They interviewed the county clerk, Joyce Whitney, who processed the request. Whitney recounts a fantastic story:
"I asked if he wanted a confidential one, and he said 'no.,' He said, 'Just give me a public one - I'm over myself.' "
Barry Zito... badass move, man.
