April 3, 2014 | No comments

Anyone can buy tickets to a baseball game and propose to their significant other, but if you want to take it to the next level — a jumbotron appearance or perhaps a commemorative DVD — you’ll have to pay up.

Molly Fitzpatrick undertook the task of calling every Major League Baseball team to see what it would cost to put on a big proposal.

During the moments when he walked off camera, his dad reports that he held his mom and sobbed.

Congratulations, Logan. You’re going to be a great big brother.
