Hudson Valley Student Catches Ring At Yankee Stadium

As surprising as some of the homeruns popped from Aaron Judge this season for the Yankees, a superfan had a surprise of her own this weekend.

While participating in the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation 5k charity race, which takes place completely within Yankee Stadium, Caitlyn Henry and Matthew Fuller were walking the course.

The couple met 3-years ago in the library at Hudson Valley Community College when they were both students at the school and have been together ever since.

Fuller, “a thoughtful guy who goes out of his way to help others” according to a quote from Henry within the Times Union had a pretty big idea to pull off. Knowing that his girlfriend is a Yankees fanatic, getting her to be a part of this charitable 5k that took place on the field was pretty big. But you know what makes it bigger? Popping the question!

As they were walking the course, Fuller says, “I started walking around and telling her how special she is to me , then right in front of the Jumbotron I got down on one knee and asked her if she wanted to spend the rest of her life with me.” In case you were curious, she said yes!

And the crowd went wild!

There’s no date set yet, but the couple would like to think it’ll take place in the next year or two.
