Austin and Anna first met at high school, but they never talked to each other. After his freshman year, he came home for the summer break and to attend his sister's wedding where their love story began. The duo started dating since 2015 and is inseparable since then.
On 28th November 2017, Austin and Anna went for a date night after a long season apart. On the way to eat, the baseball pitcher got a call that he needed to meet up with someone on the way. So, the couple pulled into the parking lot by the river, and Austin asked if Anna wanted to walk around while they waited.
As they walked around, he kept inching towards the river. Suddenly, he came to a complete stop and turned towards her and knelt on one knee! Of course, the answer was YES!
On November 3, 2018, the couple tied the knot at Hernando United Methodist Church in 1890 Mt Pleasant Rd, Hernando, MS 38632.
In the 2015 MLB draft, he was picked in the first round, with the 41st overall selection, by the Atlanta Braves. That season, he made his professional debut with the Gulf Coast Braves. Further, he went on to play for various minor league teams.
