Time Together

Zack Greinke met Emily Kuchar while they were in high school together at Apopka High in Florida.  Emily has been stated saying that when she was a library assistant in high school Zack began doing a lot more of his homework when she was on duty and the pair hit it off.  About 8 years later, the couple got married in November of 2009.

Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader

Emily, who says she has been dancing since the age of 4, became a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader when she was 18 years old and danced for the team for 2 seasons.  Being a Cowboys cheerleader opened a few doors for Emily and since her time with the squad she has appeared in a movie, done several television interviews and she was even named Miss Daytona Beach in 2008.  She still does a variety of photo shoots and is featured in many fashion magazines.

Interesting Fact

Zack Greinke almost walked away from baseball and would have never became one of the top pitchers in the league if it wasn’t for Emily.  When Zack was diagnosed with social anxiety disorder during the 2006 season Emily was his rock and he has said many times that she played an integral part in him overcoming this disorder and being able to return to the mound.  This was a great investment for both of them because now Greinke is raking in $9.5 million a year!
