Blue Jays’ Kevin Pillar helped a fan get engaged before Game 1

Friday October 9th, 2015

While most Blue Jays fans were not thrilled with the outcome of Game 1 of the team’s ALDS series against the Astros, at least one pair of fans are smiling despite the 5–3 loss, after getting engaged with some help from outfielder Kevin Pillar.

The fan got a picture with Pillar holding a sign that read, “Dear Katie, Will you marry this guy?” that he used to propose to his girlfriend.

The question was popped outside the stadium as the couple walked into Game 1 with an assist from the photo, and Pillar was happy the fan got the response he wanted.

In addition to helping with proposals, Pillar also found time to hit an RBI double in the ALDS opener on Thursday.
