What should have been a happy moment for a couple was turned to an awkward moment as a man was left rejected and humiliated on the baseball field after his girlfriend said ‘no’ to his marriage proposal.
It all happened at the New Britain Rock Cats minor league baseball game in Connecticut when the man, only identified as David, asked his girlfriend, Jessica, to marry him.
TV cameras were rolling as David proposed in front of the crowd with Rocky the mascot and the announcer standing beside him. But after Jessica softly whispered “I’m sorry, I can’t” and ran off the field, the announcer resorted to awkward laughter and attempted to console broken-hearted David by saying “I don’t think we ever had this happen before.”
However, not everyone is buying that the rejection was real. The Big Lead has speculated that the proposal could be a hoax, saying: “The New Britain Rock Cats just held Christmas in July last month, so they’re not above odd promotions.”
Watch the video below and decide if you think the rejected proposal was real or a hoax.
