bullpen lovin’

In a story that seems like something found only in a romantic comedy, Seattle Mariners’ bullpen catcher Jason Phillips spotted a beautiful woman in the stands during a game last May. They made eye contact a few times throughout the game, and Phillips decided to make a bold move. He wrote his name and number on a ball and threw it to her.

They’re getting married this Sunday in the bullpen of Safeco Field.

How adorable is that story? To every woman who’s ever complained that rom coms are unrealistic, I offer Jason Phillips as proof. Romance isn’t dead, people.

That means the meaningful glances* Joba Chamberlain and I shared during the Sox/Yankees game last month must mean something, right?

*We made eye contact. Twice. Not like I was counting or anything.
