As of 2015, the couple split their time between Arizona and New York after Jacoby Ellsbury left the Boston Red Sox in 2013 to sign with Yankees. During their time in Boston, Kelsey was active in Red Sox's charity endeavors. She went to Oregon State, where she met her future husband.

Known for his athleticism and speed when running the bases, Jacoby earned a spot as a rookie for the Red Sox in 2008. He went on to break the rookie stolen base record set decades earlier by Amby McConnel.

In 2011, Jacoby racked up an impressive 32 home runs and 39 stolen bases with the Red Sox. He played well during the 2013 season that would see the Boston team win the World Series for the first time since 1918 at home in Fenway Park.

After the championship, Ellsbury opted for free agency and was signed for 7 years for a reported sum of 153 million dollars.

Jacoby and Kelsey steer away from the public eye and aren't forthcoming about their relationship with the press, managing to quietly marry before throwing a party with friends in Arizona, where they live in the off season.
