At least she said yes! A baseball fan goes viral after running into the field to propose to his girlfriend at Dodger Stadium… only to be flattened in a brutal tackle by a security guard
A romantic Los Angeles Dodgers fan got more than he bargained for when he tried to propose to his girlfriend on the field when he was knocked down on one knee by a security guard.
The amazing moment occurred during the Dodgers’ Opening Day encounter against the Arizona Diamondbacks, which the home team won 8-2 — but it will be remembered for more than James Ottman’s three innings.
In fact, the night will go down in history for the moment that occurred away from the plate, when a fan took matters into his own hands.
In various videos shot from across the park, the cheerleader – Ricardo Juarez – jumps barriers at Dodger Stadium and runs off the field, before turning to face the crowd and – presumably – his girlfriend.
In a romantic gesture that definitely ended in a courtesy, he then proceeds to get down on one knee to propose.

But before he can get an answer from the stands, an accused security guard comes from the fire, slams the baseball fan to the ground, before teammates join him to hold the man to the ground and then drag him away.
It was later revealed that the woman – Ramona Saavedra – said yes to the bold proposal, after this moment it quickly went viral on social media with fans who gawked at the clip.
“She said yes,” read a post on an Instagram story. “After being removed from office like this, did she have a choice.”
The couple celebrated the entire day by traveling in a luxury party bus to the game with plenty of friends, as Saavedra documented the big day on her Instagram profile.
The group is seen dropping shots into the road as they dance down the aisle with Juarez flexing his muscles. The new couple took a lot of photos before the show.
Saavedra filmed her fiancé being escorted off the square by cops and added it to her Instagram story, writing, “Oh well best show ever I love you and yes I will marry you.”
In one corner, even the players appeared so shocked at the severity of the security guard’s injury that Diamondbacks’ left fielder, Lourdes Guriel Jr., even put his hands to his head in response.
In the same game, Los Angeles rebounded from an early 2-0 deficit to defeat the Diamondbacks and secure an Opening Day win with home court advantage.
Mookie Betts, Freddie Freedman, Will Smith, Miguel Vargas, and Miguel Rojas each scored one run, while center fielder Outman scored three.
