VIDEO: Ambushed Officer Jesse Hartnett Proposed to His Girlfriend at Yesterday’s Phillies Home Opener

It was quite an exciting afternoon at the Phillies home opener yesterday—and it had nothing to do with the Phils playing in their home opener. After throwing out the ceremonial first pitch, Philadelphia police officer Jesse Hartnett, who you may recall was seriously injured in an ambush shooting a few months back, proposed to his girlfriend!

The crowd (and the Phanatic!) cheered on as Hartnett’s girlfriend joined him on the field, at which point the officer whipped a ring out of his sling and got down on one knee, right there at center field.

Watch it all unfold here:

Congrats to the happy couple!
