Girlfriend gets a ring, boyfriend gets a baseball

Tigers fans Matt and Shana thought they were just going to have a quiet night at the ballpark.

You know, watch the game, get engaged and go home.

But in the bottom of the sixth, the couple's simple date was interrupted by a foul ball that came hurtling in their direction.

Matt bravely deflected the speeding sphere so as to protect his fiance, and a kindly gentleman nearby returned the baseball as an early wedding present.

We know what happens when you don't shield your girlfriend from a foul ball, so smart move, Matt.
