The final engagement at Yankee Stadium

Grooms, Jewelry & Accessories

Sporting events are notorious for being great places to propose, so when it came time to schedule the final engagement that would take place at the Yankee Stadium before the team moved to their new field next season, Michael C. Fina and Hearts on Fire stepped in to make sure it was extra special. Last night, Bill Davis of Elizabethtown, PA proposed to his now fiancée Kate Cannon after winning The Final Engagement contest.

After Bill's late wife passed away he suffered financial difficulties so his co-worker, Kate, offered him and his son Chris, who lives with autism, a place to stay. The two fell in love and bonded through their love of the Yankees. Bill's story stood out from the nearly 8,000 other entries and he won a $40,000 engagement ring and the opportunity to propose to Kate on the DiamondVision Screen last night at one of the last games that will ever be played at Yankee Stadium. A shocked Kate accepted the proposal and plans to incorporate their love for the Yankees into their upcoming wedding. —Cari Wolfert
