The duo, who has made their love public from the beginning, do not shy away from featuring each other on their social media. 

On both of their Instagram profiles, we can find photos of the adorable pair. They are regularly pictured together, attending games, events, or just chilling on holidays.

Their last picture together is from Arrowhead Stadium, where Maggie showed up to cheer for her partner during his game against Texas Rangers.

Furthermore, they never forego the chance to wish each other on special occasions, like birthdays and anniversaries. On her last birthday, which was on February 4, 2022, Witt made a sweet post, saying he is lucky to have her.

However, the couple is yet to become married or engaged. Fans are more than eager to see Witt put a ring on her finger after following their love story for six years.

Witt's dad, Bobby Sr., once joked with his daughters that they should stay away from ballplayers. He has three siblings, sisters Shaley, Kiki, and Nikki.

However, over a decade later, Bobby Jr. became the fourth one in the family to disregard that advice as he became intertwined with the softball player Maggie Black.

“She [Maggie] will throw me BP, and I will flip her soft-toss, too,” he says, adding, “Her BP is pretty good. It is nice to have that; if my dad ever can’t throw, she is there.”

It is to be noted that Bobby Sr. is also a former baller who played as a pitcher in MLB for teams Texas Rangers, Oakland Athletics, and Arizona Diamondbacks, among others.
