Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Alex Cobb had a little help in proposing to his fiancee, Kelly Reynolds.

During a trip to Discovery Cove in Orlando, Cobb used a dolphin to pose the question to Reynolds. One can imagine her surprise upon seeing the animal swim up to her with a buoy in its mouth that read, "Kelly, will you marry me?" Reynolds loved the gesture.

After exiting the pool, Cobb got down on one knee and proposed in the traditional fashion.

It's been a whirlwind year for Cobb, who was struck by a line drive in a game on June 15, 2013. He suffered a concussion and a cut on his right ear. He missed two months of action and returned to help push the Rays into the playoffs.

Even though he was out for an extended period of time, Cobb had a very productive season. He recorded a career-low 2.76 ERA to go along with career-highs in innings pitched (143.1) and strikeouts (134).
