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.Google+
