Miss Missouri is becoming Mrs. Missouri-Zito.

Amber Marie Seyer, who represented the Show-Me State in the 2007 Miss USA pageant, is marrying San Fransisco Giants pitcher Barry Zito this weekend.

This is one of those prom king and queen unions. Zito, 33, is the John Mayer of baseball, with his dark ruffled hair and a string of public romances involving Alyssa Milano and Paris Hilton. When he's not busy throwing his frustratingly inconsistent curve-ball, he enjoys playing the guitar, yoga, and surfing. Also, he is mid-way through a seven year $126 million contract.

Seyer, 25, finished tenth place in the 2007 competition. She grew up in Oran and graduated from Lindenwood University, in St. Charles. She enjoys riding horses and hair styling. She is also an actress, with three credits under her belt including a 2010 episode of the Bold and the Beautiful.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the wedding will take place in a private ceremony in Marin County, which is just north of San Francisco. The paper notes that the couple plans to split time between the Bay Area and Los Angeles.

Zito has drawn loads of criticism over the years for, most would argue, failing to live up to his historically large contract, which at the time made him the highest paid pitcher in the MLB history. But, despite his 43-61 record in his five years with the 2010 World Series champs, Zito has also made it difficult for Giants fans to personally despise him. He is just so got damn likeable.

For instance, there's this gem from the Chronicle:

Zito and his bride-to-be showed up at the Marin County clerk's office Nov. 18 to take out a marriage license.

"I asked if he wanted a confidential one, and he said 'no,' " said Joyce Whitney, a senior deputy county clerk. "He said, 'Just give me a public one - I'm over myself.' "
