The New Britain Rock Cats, a Double-A affiliate of the Minnesota Twins, has admitted to staging a failed marriage proposal.
The minor league team said two employees participated in the publicity stunt proposal, which has more than 600,000 views on YouTube.
The video shows the couple playing an on-field trivia game at a Rock Cats game. The third question is a marriage proposal, to which they girl replies "no" and runs off the field.
"If anyone was offended by the promotion in any way we sincerely apologize," said Mike Abramson, vice president of marketing for the Rock Cats. "This endeavor was intended to entertain and remind fans you never know what you're going to see at a Rock Cats game."
