CINCINNATI (WKRC) - A pair of Reds fans had a memorable engagement Saturday thanks to some help from one of the team's star players.

Matt Hare roped center fielder Billy Hamilton into assisting in asking his girlfriend, Jessica Torbeck, to marry him.

The two were at a meet-and-greet with Hamilton at Great American Ball Park. After signing his newly-released bobblehead for Torbeck, Hamilton pulled out a baseball shaped ring case from under the table and said, "I think this is for you too."

Hare then took the case from her, got down on one knee, and asked her to marry him.

Of course, she said yes.

The two then took pictures with Hamilton and the Reds provided the couple with a gift bag.

The Reds tweeted out a video that captured the couple's memorable moment.
