Want a ballpark proposal? Here’s what it’ll cost you
There’s nothing more romantic than a nice, public proposal plastered on a Jumbotron at a ballpark — except maybe anything else.
But if getting down on one knee at an MLB stadium is in your future, Molly Fitzpatrick at Swimmingly has figured out how much you’ll be ponying up on that fateful day depending on the team.
Pittsburgh Pirates fans are lucky, or unlucky depending on how you look at it, but for the low price of $38.50, PNC Park will display the proposal message on the scoreboard.
On the other end of the cost spectrum, the Los Angeles Dodgers are the most expensive at $2,500, and that includes the proposal being shown live on the Dodger Stadium scoreboard.
The Philadelphia Phillies make the deal a little sweeter for the cool price of $450, throwing in four tickets and a champagne toast in addition to the live shot on the video board, while the Boston Red Sox offer a message on the Fenway Park scoreboard, a visit from Wally and featuring the couple on the video board, all for $350.
Five teams in the league — the Los Angeles Angels, Kansas City Royals, Baltimore Orioles, New York Mets and Toronto Blue Jays — don’t feature wedding proposal packages at all.
