Surprise proposal at Comerica Park will leave you speechless

Karen Fultz thought she was just posing for a picture with Paws outside Comerica Park. She had no idea, the love of her life, Freddie Weinke was on bended knee behind her about to propose.

Since Paws does not talk, there was a slight communication snag. However, that did not stop the Tigers mascot from being an unofficial 'ring bearer' for this proposal. Paws presented Karen with a baseball out from under his cap.

"What are you doing? Why is my name on it?" said Karen.

The baseball had "will you marry me?" written on it.

"Freddie - where is Freddie? Freddie – Freddie," said Karen. Then, she turned and saw him behind her. She immediately replied with a cheerful YES!

"He told me I was coming down here to take a picture," said Karen.

However, she was not the only one who was left surprised. Freddie says that after all this planning, he was as speechless as she was.

"I saw Paws come out and I got speechless and I saw her and when that ball came out- that was a wrap – there are not words to describe the feeling I had on one knee," said Freddie. "Those were the longest 30 seconds of my life." 

"Even though she lives in Minnesota she comes home every year for the home opener for Detroit - for the Tigers. They'll be here tomorrow. They might even be here all night tonight," friends said.

Needless to say, this is one Opening day the couple will never forget.
