Drama at the ballpark and it had nothing to do with the Yankee/Red Sox rivalry… A man proposing to his girlfriend lost the ring prior to the proposal…
“I literally started crying because I thought it was lost,” Fox, of Bethlehem, Pa., told ESPN. “It happened so fast.”
With everyone invested in the search — even the cameramen — his girlfriend, Heather Terwilliger of Fredonia, N.Y., finally searched the cuffs of her own bell-bottom jeans. She spotted the ring and smiled as the surrounding fans and TV announcers erupted in celebration.
“I didn’t know how to react,” Terwilliger said.
“We got it!” the ESPN announcers shouted over the air. “Yes, yes, yes! Woohoo! And she found the ring. Please say yes.”
After Mark Teixeira hit a single, the camera switched back to the couple, whose kiss allowed everyone to let out a sigh of relief. She said yes despite the miscue.
“Way better than the game,” one announcer admitted.
