Hitting a walk-off home run for the New Hampshire Fisher Cats (Blue Jays' Double-A affiliate) was just the beginning of third baseman Andy Burns' memorable day. Shortly after the game-winning homer on Sunday, Burns took his girlfriend to a beach 45 minutes away from the stadium and proposed.
She said yes, of course.
It was quite the night for our 3B Andy Burns. Walk off home run blast followed by a proposal to his now fiancé! Congrats Andy & Kate!

"Once I hit home plate, one of my buddies said, 'Now you've got to go propose.' That's 100 times bigger than any game could ever be," Burns said, via MiLB.com.
