Minor league team faked rejected marriage proposal

NEW BRITAIN, Conn. — The minor league baseball team in New Britain, Conn., is acknowledging it staged a rejected marriage proposal as a publicity stunt.

In a video posted online, the woman being proposed to on the field replies, “I’m sorry, I can’t, I’m sorry” and then flees. The video has been viewed more than 600,000 times on YouTube and was the subject of several news stories.

The Double-A Rock Cats, an affiliate of the Minnesota Twins, issued a statement today acknowledging the club staged the event with two employees standing in for the unhappy couple.

Mike Abramson, the team’s vice president of marketing, says the team hoped the video would go viral and is pleased with the outcome. The team is apologizing to anyone who might have been offended.
