A Houston Astros Major League Baseball player’s night got even better after his team defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers in game 7 of the World Series on Wednesday night.
Shortstop Carlos Correa proposed to his girlfriend — former Miss Texas Daniella Rodriguez — on television immediately following the game, the Daily Mail reported.
“He had been so focused on the game,” Rodriguez said in amazement. “All he ever talked about was winning the World Series, so I never really thought something like this would be on his mind, so when it all went down, I was just shocked.”
A great day for @TeamCJCorrea just got even better.

Correa, who was urged by his mother to “put a ring on it,” planned the proposal for several weeks and decided to wait till the World Series to propose. A few of his teammates were even in on the planning, helping him pick out the ring.
“Everyone knew besides me,” Rodriguez continued. “I’m really good at finding stuff out. Every time I had a surprise birthday party, I would always find out. So I was literally in just the complete dark about this. Everyone knew but me.”
