Watch This Guy Strike Out After Dropping Big Bucks For Marriage Proposal

A man reportedly spent a bundle so that he could propose to his girlfriend live at the ballpark. The crowd watched eagerly, and cameras were fixed on the two, but when the man popped the question, he didn't get the answer he was expecting. That must have been painful.

The unnamed lover boy reportedly plopped down $350 so he could propose to his girlfriend at Fenway Park in front of the billboard. As they stood up there, the man started his proposal. Cameras fixed on them, the audience chanted 'just say yes!' and everyone awaited the woman's response. It wasn't good.

There were no tears, no hugs, and no hand held out for a ring. As soon the camera operators realized that this was not going according to plan, the cameras cut away from the couple to give them their privacy. A collective groan from the crowds in the stands could be heard, however, leaving no question about the woman's answer.

Many baseball fans took to Twitter to slam the woman for ruining the moment.

“Holy h--l somebody just proposed to their girlfriend at Fenway and I think they said no,” tweeted one person.

"Even worse because it costs like 400 bucks to do a scoreboard proposal at Fenway," said another.

"Meanest Girl Award goes to the chick last night at Fenway who rejected a dude's marriage proposal in front of 37K fans," tweeted a witness.

Some people defended the woman, saying people don't know the reason behind her answer.

"Dude, you don't know them. Maybe it was their third date. Maybe he's manipulative. A girl doesn't have to say yes, just cause someone asked," responded one Twitter user.

Some people are just offended by big, ostentatious public proposals. "Kudos to the woman who drew a line in the sand and said no to the proposal at Fenway. Let this be the beginning of the end for this."

Hopefully, the guy learned his lesson, though. Don’t make a big public spectacle of a proposal if you aren’t sure you’re going to get a ‘yes.'
