Sarah Wacha and Michael Wacha’s Relationship

Michael Wacha made his MLB debut with the St. Louis Cardinals in 2013. In May 2014, Sarah was visiting home from college when they met.

Wacha and Cardinals teammate Matt Adams were unwinding after a game at a bar named Hair of the Dog. The then-UArizona student was catching up with high school friends there. At some point, their groups converged; they had a great time, played shuffleboard, and hit it off from there. The couple returned to the same bar on their first dating anniversary.

After college, Sarah returned to St. Louis and found a teaching job. Meanwhile, the pitcher’s MLB career kept him on the road. They maintained a long-distance relationship for years and supported each other’s jobs.

The couple got engaged in January 2020, shortly after Wacha had signed with the New York Mets. They had planned a wedding with 300 guests at a country club in St. Louis for November 2020 before COVID-19 derailed the original plans.

Wacha had relocated to Tampa Bay when he signed with the Rays in 2020. Instead of a big wedding in the city they met, they had a backyard wedding on November 28, 2020, in Jupiter, Florida. Two days prior, they hosted a Thanksgiving dinner and married that weekend in the presence of 15 guests.
