Watch: Fiancé loses ring during proposal at Yankees game

Heather Terwilliger and Andrew Fox embrace after the couple became engaged during a baseball game between the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox in New York, Tuesday, Sept. 27, 2016. Fox's first attempt went awry when he opened the box and the engagement ring fell. Eventually the ring was located in the cuff of Terwilliger's pants. The second time was the charm.

(MEDIA GENERAL) – Ladies, let’s have a quick conversation. What’s the most romantic place your beau could pop the question? A baseball game, right?

Forking out the $100 fee to get your names on the jumbotron. Delicately ensuring he doesn’t drip any nacho cheese on his jersey before the break in the fifth inning. It’s the stuff of Shakespeare.

One young Romeo decided to propose to his girlfriend at Tuesday’s game at Yankee Stadium, and, well, things didn’t go quite according to plan.

Cameras caught Andrew Fox, of New Castle, Pennsylvania, holding the ring box with a stunned look on his face as he mouthed the words, “the ring just dropped.” Yankees broadcaster Michael Kay picked up the action on YES Network, as surrounding fans and stadium personnel whipped out their flashlights to look under the seats for the ring.

After a few minutes of searching, the ring was found in the cuff of his soon-to-be fiancée’s pant leg and the crowd let out a Bronx cheer – figuratively and, in this case, literally.

She said yes.

When Fox pulled the ring from his pocket and dropped to one knee before Terwilliger to propose during the fifth inning of the Yankees' game, the ring dropped to the ground. A frantic search ensued. After about five minutes, Terwilliger looked down and saw something shiny in the cuff of her pants leg. (Scott Orgera via AP)
