Yankee Stadium

There are many reasons to think twice about proposing at a sporting event. At Yankee Stadium on Tuesday night, one of those reasons captivated a national TV audience.

Andrew Fox, 29, of New Castle, Pennsylvania, went down on one knee to pop the question to girlfriend Heather Terwilliger of Fredonia, New York. The video board showed Fox opening a Kay Jewelers box, but the ring was missing.

Fox and other fans in left field scrambled to find the runaway ring.

ESPN also devoted time to this struggle on the national broadcast.

Luckily, Fox recovered the ring and Terwillinger said, "Yes," despite her now-fiancé embarrassing them in front of millions of people across the country.

"I literally started crying because I thought it was lost," Fox told ESPN.

The Yankees beat the rival Red Sox, 6-4, and with an Orioles loss, the team moved to four games back of the final AL Wild Card spot with five games to play. The Yankees end the season with three home games against the Orioles.
