Talor Gooch Parents
Talor was born to parents, Ronnie Gooch and Ambre Gooch. Born on April 16, 1957 in Thomas, Oklahoma, Ronnie grew up in Midwest City where he was an outstanding four-sport athlete. He was a football quarterback, a basketball point guard, and Oklahoma All-State baseball infielder, and he won a state championship in wrestling.
Ronnie was recruited to Southeastern Oklahoma State University by baseball coach Don Parham. He found immediate success as a second baseman on Savage teams that won three Oklahoma Collegiate Conference championships. He was also a member of the 1977 Savages squad that advanced to the finals of the NAIA College World Series, losing in the championship game.
In addition, Ronnie was a two-time All-Conference selection, and in 1978, he was named the Oklahoma Collegiate Conference Player of the Year. He was also selected as an NAIA All-American, while playing alongside the likes of fellow All-Americans Brett Butler and Scott Loucks.

Talor Gooch Family
Talor is the son of Ronnie and Ambre Gooch. His father, Ron, played baseball in the Texas Rangers’ organization. His mother, Ambre, holds a law degree from the University of Oklahoma. He has one sister, Cassidi.
Talor credits his family — parents Ronnie and Ambre and wife Ally – for their support as he continues to chase his goals.
“My mom and dad are super – they made so many sacrifices for me growing up so I could travel to tournaments. As far as goals, I have one goal – to be the best I can be. And I don’t know what that is until I get there.”
Why “Talor” and not “Taylor”? “My mom’s side of the family just spelled names weird and so they just wanted to keep the tradition going,” Talor said in a past media interview. “Nothing special other than they just wanted to make life hard on me, I guess. It’s a pain in the b— a little bit.”
The tradition isn’t exclusive to Talor. His mother’s name is “Amber,” spelled A-M-B-R-E and his sister’s name is Cassidi, spelled as it sounds but with an “i” rather than a “y” at the end.
“I mean, especially all the women in the family on my mom’s side, all their names are spelled uniquely,” he said.
However, the Oklahoma native and his wife, Ally, ditched the ritual when they became parents to a daughter, Collins.
“It wasn’t unique, no. We cut the tradition,” he said. “I don’t want her to have to deal with all the struggles I had to with the weirdly spelled name.”
