In case you’re feeling romantic this spring, Swimmingly.com has compiled every MLB team’s pricing plans for marriage proposals at baseball games this season. We put together all of the Red Sox’s opponents in the AL East, as well as a few of the wackier offers around the league.
If you want to propose at Fenway Park, it’ll cost you $250 to get a message up on the scoreboard. If you bump that price up to $350, you’ll be featured live on the video board and Wally will come by. It’s pretty difficult to think of many things more romantic than Wally, right?
It costs $100 to get a proposal message displayed on the scoreboard at Yankee Stadium, and there’s a limit to 10 per game. But, really, could you imagine being that 10th guy in one game to go for the same proposal strategy? You don’t even get your own inning. It’s either extras or the seventh inning stretch.
The Orioles are a serious baseball club and don’t offer proposals.
The Blue Jays don’t offer proposals either. They also take baseball very seriously. On an unrelated note, Toronto last won the division in 1993 and Baltimore hasn’t taken the AL East since 1997.
The Rays know how to have fun, but it will cost you. For $500 you get your proposal featured live on the video board, as well as a dozen roses and a commemorative DVD. Also, there’s only one per game, so no one can steal your thunder.
Pittsburgh offer the cheapest deal in the league at $38.50, because nothing says “marry me’’ quite like asking for change on your proposal at a Pirates game.
Detroit wins the award for most creative offer. For just $50 the team mascot, Paws, sets up a trivia contest that concludes with a surprise proposal. You also get a baseball with a personalized message and the date. Dish out $75 and you get a message up on the scoreboard too.
The Phillies are classy. Their $450 deal puts your proposal up live on the video board, but you also get four tickets to the game, a champagne toast, and a commemorative DVD.
Washington offers one proposal message on the scoreboard per game for $500, but if you want to be featured live on the video board it’ll cost you. The Nationals only do two per season and it totals $1,500.
