What a year it's been for Pirates centerfielder Andrew McCutchen.

First, he helped the Buccos to their first playoff appearance since 1992, then he won the NL MVP, and today he got engaged on national television.

McCutchen, who was a guest on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, presented his girlfriend, Maria Hanslovan, with a tribute video and then called her on stage. After a speech about how he envisioned calling out to her from the highest mountain top, he proceeded to propose on the next closest thing, a daytime talk show stage.

She said yes.
