Max Scherzer’s wife Erica May-Scherzer had one heck of a November, 2013. After watching Max win the Cy Young award, the two were married on November 23, in Scottsdale, Arizona. The couple took off for a honeymoon in New Zealand shortly thereafter.
Max Scherzer’s wife Erica May Scherzer has been in the picture for the better part of the past decade. The wedding was a culmination of staying together through years of toil through the minors and rise to fame in the bigs together and a reward for faith in one another. After being drafted late Max decided to attend Missouri to pitch instead. Probably a good choice as while he was at Missouri Max Scherzer’s girlfriend Erica May entered his life.
Erica was a pitcher on the Missouri softball team and the two dated for over 9 years before tying the knot. In October 2012, we wrote our prediction:
If Max and the Tigers win the World Series this year with he’ll be proposing to Erica in the offseason. I mean 8 years is a long time for a girl to be dating a guy and not get a ring. Hell I’m shocked she is still around after 8 years.
You still got it, PlayerWives.com.
Not only was Max Scherzer’s wife a big softball fan she is also of all things a huge Oakland Raiders fan. She is a prolific tweeter anytime the Raiders play. The headline on her Twitter page says “Coloradan by birth, Raiders fan by choice.” Not sure why someone would choose to be a Raiders fan but so be it.
The 2012 season wasn’t all good for Max Scherzer and Erica. In June, Max’s brother Alex committed suicide after battling depression. Born only three years apart Max and Alex were extremely close. Max pitched three days after Alex’s death as a way for the family to rally. He held Pittsburgh to 3 runs in 6 innings of work.
