Hi everyone! My name is Amanda Debus (@realadebus) and my fiancé is RHP Chad Kuhl (@chad_kuhl) with the Pittsburgh Pirates. We met way back when in 6th grade and dated off and on throughout middle and high school. Senior year, he asked me to be his girlfriend for the very last time. We both went to college at the University of Delaware (home of the Fighting #bluehens!), where I graduated with a degree in Health and Physical Education. He was drafted by the Pirates during his junior year and our life in the minor leagues took off. The first few seasons were hard for us, but we quickly learned how to survive the distance. Short Season A ball took us to Jamestown, NY where Chad was a Jamestown Jammer. The next season he was in High A, playing in Bradenton, FL with the Bradenton Marauders. The 2015 season was spent mostly in “Toon-town,” Altoona, PA with the AA team, Altoona Curve — this was also the first season I stayed with Chad during the summer. We were staying with the most wonderful roommates (???? @abstalls @amsmith929 @victoriaaepli), we survived the apartment flooding twice, and we learned how to handle an engine overheating on a 5 hour drive to an away game. The Curve made it to the playoffs that year, and after Chad started in the last game, and while the Curve lost, Chad was told after that game that he was promoted to AAA. Chad finished the season with the Indianapolis Indians, who also made it to the playoffs. 2016 was a big year for us. Chad started the year back in Indy, and was doing well. In June, I was crowned Miss Delaware 2016 — Chad watched the entire competition via FaceTime from the clubhouse. While I was filling out paperwork for Miss America, Chad calls me and asks if I can get the weekend off to come see him pitch in Pittsburgh. He made his Major League Debut on June 26, 2016 — his first big league game and first big league win! The rest of the season he was up and down between the majors and AAA, but in August of that year they brought him up for good. During the 2016 off season, Chad and I went on a trip to Hershey, PA where we got engaged. He planned everything to a T — (continue reading below) ??
Chad proposed his girlfriend on a trip to Hershey, PA, where the couple got engaged. His to-be-wife also revealed that the couple is planning for their beautiful wedding.
Further, exploring Chad's social media account, he has posted a lot of pictures along with his fiance and this concludes that the couple is enjoying a smooth relationship.
