He Scored a Homerun!

The day was June 18, 2011, my mom's birthday actually. A couple friends invited us to a Kernels' game because she said she got tickets from her boss and had a couple extra. Talk about a set-up. It was like any other Kernels' game we'd been to, I never noticed anything different. Then came the middle of the 6th inning; and our lives changed forever! The jumbo screen in center field read, "Vikki Lynn Bartosh, will you marry me?" As you see in the video, my jaw dropped!
By the time I read the screen, Rodney was down on one knee with ring in hand. And then he asked, "Will you marry me?" I had no idea he had this planned. Our dating anniversary is the end of August, so I was expecting it then. He had this set up for a whole week before it took place.
He had even invited family and friends to the game, told them where we would be sitting so I would not see ahead of time. So after this amazing moment, we made the rounds to say hello to everyone who showed up to the game. And to make it even more special, my mom was on a radioactive pill since she had her thyroid removed due to cancer, so she could not be in close proximity of people. There just happened to be an open suite, so she was able to stay there by herself and watch from above. Literally, she was in the suite above our section. This is definitely a day we will never forget!
