During the seventh-inning stretch, Scott Swartz asked his girlfriend to take photos of the children singing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” on the Busch Stadium videoboard.

An odd request, Cara Ferguson thought. But she had been taking photos of her favorite Cardinals all evening with her Nikon in section 144, just a few rows behind the home dugout.

Then, moments later after the children were finished, Cara turned around and found her boyfriend of 2.5 years on one knee. He asked a simple question that left her dumbfounded: “Will you marry me?”

After the shock wore off, she replied “yes” and accepted the diamond ring—much to the delight of the fans in section 144, some of whom were aware of the upcoming proposal by Scott.

The couple resides in southeastern Iowa, and for the second consecutive season, they attended a Cards game in St. Louis on July 18. The first visit was fun, Scott thought, so why not make the second one a memorable one? Six months of planning paid off.

The cherry on top of this memorable evening: the Cardinals prevailed 3-2 over the Dodgers.

Just moments before tonight’s first pitch, Lex Campaldini set his own Fourth of July fireworks by dropping down on one knee and proposing to Alex Rice. Both were in town with the International Campus Ministry. Lex surprised the hometown girl and big-time Cardinals’ fan by plotting his proposal in front of 40,000-plus fans since Feb. They’ve been dating for one year and reside in Boulder, Colo.

It’s the boy band of your baseball dreams: Carlos Martinez, Daniel Descalso, Tony Cruz, Jon Jay and Yadier Molina. But don’t worry, no one’s quitting their day job. Instead, the guys were just making a cameo in a new music video for Tony Lenta- an artist represented by Molina Records.

Today the Cardinals celebrated 3 of baseball’s finest from the St. Louis area - and these players never even wore the Birds on the Bat. Audrey Kissel, Erma Bergmann and Barbara Hoffman played in the All American Girls Professional Baseball League which inspired the 1992 film “A League of Their Own.” Kiss, Bergie and Barb played a combined 9 seasons in the women’s professional baseball league which existed from 1943 to 1954. Erma even threw a no-hitter back on May 22, 1947.

Audrey and Barbara, along with the Bergmann family, surprised Erma for her 90th birthday by bringing her to Busch to throw out the ceremonial pitch. These women truly are still in a league of their own.

It all started like a pretty normal 7th Inning Stretch last night. The kids from St. Paul Lutheran School in Jackson, MO stepped into the outfield to sing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” when student Kylie Peters noticed something out of the corner of her eye. Suddenly, Kylie’s Dad, Staff Sergeant Matthew Peters of the Missouri National Guard emerged from the right-field wagon gate. The rest is hugs and history. Wishing a very Happy Father’s Day weekend to the newly-reunited Peters Family!
