Mariners Brendan Ryan got engaged in Tokyo
Brendan Ryan the 30 year old all world short stop for the Seattle Mariners this week proposed to his long-time girlfriend on Tuesday.
The event took place on the Sky Deck on the 90th floor of Mori Tower in downtown Tokyo.
PER MLB.com Ryan told his girlfriend, Sharyn, they were going on a tour and needed to be dressed nicely.
Apparently Ryan had asked Ichiro Suzuki's interpreter, Antony Suzuki, how to say "Will you marry me?" in Japanese.
"I had this planned for quite a while," said Ryan. "Once I heard we were going to Japan, I figured it was a pretty cool opportunity. Then MLB heard about it and stepped in and rolled out the red carpet for us and it was just awesome."
MLB Baseball is underway for the Seattle Mariners. They've now played two games over in Tokyo. Winning 3-1 on Wednesday and losing 4-1 on Thursday to the Oakland Athletics.
The team now returns to Arizona for 5 more spring training games. (Yes crazy we know)
