Typically, this is news we wouldn’t touch on here for a couple reasons. First and foremost, there‘s usually more pressing baseball news that demands our attention. That doesn't apply on a holiday weekend during the offseason, however. Second, rarely are we even made aware of when or where a big league player’s wedding is taking place, let alone many of the details that surrounded it. That also doesn’t apply to Miller’s wedding, because the runner up to the NL Rookie of the Year and his new bride basically retold the entire story of their relationship and wedding to the New York Times.
The 1,400 word feature covers everything, beginning with their courtship when Miller was still working his way through the Cardinals minor league system, to coping with Miller’s disappearance in the postseason, all the way through the wedding itself on Nov 16. It’s a lot of ground to cover, and quite frankly much of the detail is awkward, so we’ll just touch on some highlights and let you decide if it’s worth the investment of your time.Read More »from Shelby Miller’s wedding gets extensive New York Times coverage
