"My best memory is right now," says San Francisco Giants star hitter Hunter Pence, as he gets down on one knee to propose to his girlfriend, Alexis Cozombolidis, at Disney World.
Pence, usually so smooth but clearly just a little nervous, stumbles a bit as he steps up to bat, embarking upon a wonderfully awkward proposal:
"When we started I didn't understand how a relationship really worked," Pence says, taking a swing. "Will you take my hand? I promise to always love, to be a standup, loyal, true man to you, to give you my all...."
Before the poor guy could even get out the words "Will you marry me?" Lexi, a production coordinator at IGN, says, "Oh my god, yes!" and leans in for a kiss. In true Disney style, fireworks capped the moment. We'd call that a Hunter Pence home run. Watch the whole lovely, sappy moment here.
Congrats, Hunter and Alexis! Mazel tov!
