Not a dry eye at Busch after soldier's proposal

Army SPC William Johanson-Kubin sat on the dugout steps prior to Friday's Cardinals game, nervous as could be. William was in town as part of FOX Sports Midwest's 'This One's For You' broadcast, which honors troops and telecasts the game over the Armed Forces Network.

He was also in St. Louis for another reason: To surprise his longtime girlfriend with a marriage proposal.

Shelby Fetsch came to Busch Stadium thinking she was throwing out the first pitch in honor of her boyfriend who was serving in Afghanistan. Little did she know, she would be leaving with a ring.
