As a camera on the couple broadcast the big moment on the center field video board, Fox dropped the ring he had planned on using to propose to girlfriend Heather Terwilliger.
When Fox pulled out the ring and dropped to one knee to propose during the middle of the fifth inning, the ring fell to the ground. The crowd gasped and then jeered the fumble.
Fox and Terwilliger scrambled to find the jewelry, the search televised between pitches by the Yankees' YES Network. The hunt under the chairs went on for nearly five tense minutes as Fox began to cry, fearing the ring was lost. Continue lol....
'I literally started crying because I thought it was lost,' Fox told ESPN.
Several other fans joined the search, rooting around on the ground, some using lights on their mobile phones.
'I opened the ring box and got on my knee, and as soon as I opened it just fell, and we couldn't find it for the longest time,' Fox said.
Finally, Terwilliger looked down and saw something shiny in the cuff of her pants leg earning a save. The crowd of 35,161 roared.
'Everyone was trying to help us find it, and it ended up being in her pants leg, like the bottom of it,' Fox said.
Fox sank to a knee - again - to present the ring. Terwilliger, who is from Fredonia, New York, said yes, then gave him a long kiss and a hug.
