Watch: Marlins fan uses first pitch to propose to girlfriend
A Miami Marlins fan used a ceremonial first pitch before Wednesday’s game as an opportunity to propose to his girlfriend.
A woman named Marlyn was set to sing the national anthem and throw out the ceremonial first pitch before the Marlins-Los Angeles Dodgers game. The man catching behind home plate happened to be her boyfriend, who then proposed.

The Marlins filmed a video with the man, Rafael, before his proposal, in which he described his plan. They posted that to Twitter, which included the best part — instead of a ring box, the engagement ring was stored inside a hollowed-out baseball.
