Soldier Proposes to Girlfriend at Royals Game on Memorial Day (Video)
Monday was Memorial Day and many baseball teams supported the holiday by wearing tribute caps. Several teams also had soldiers participate in game-day ceremonies such as throwing out the first pitch or singing God Bless America. In Kansas City, the best gesture of all may have taken place.
As I was watching the Angels-Royals game on TV, they showed a soldier who surprised his girlfriend by proposing to her at Kauffman Stadium — only there was a catch; the Royals were in on the surprise. Check out the video brought to us courtesy of Big League Stew:
Congrats to Eddie and Celi on their engagement. It’s never easy doing something like that in such a public forum, but that was a beautiful moment. Kudos to the Royals for helping to arrange it, and I’m glad it worked out much better than this recent ballpark proposal turned disaster.
