Sparks Fly and Knee Kneels at Session One

Sept. 1, 2022

Sparks fly after a surprise proposal at Big League Dreams Park when a senior softball player dropped down on one knee to propose to his girlfriend, Jody.

Mark Warner proposed to Jody Krupp after the 11 a.m. game between Dudley Lightning 60 of Missouri and D’Amore Law Group of Washington State, which Dudley Lightning won 25-16, during the first session on Sept. 15.

Here’s how Mark describes the experience:

"This was the day that my first love met the love of my life.

“This day will live on in our hearts until the end of time. Jody deserved this day. This day could not have been possible without Clay Cary and his wonderful wife and the entire Dudley Family. Our Teammates, brothers and their lovely wives gave us a day that still brings tears of joy to Jody and I!

“This day was made even more special by Director Keith Parker and his wife. Keith walked Jody on to the Dodger Field and his wife took great pictures that we now have on our living room wall.

“The SSUSA is a brotherhood that I am so proud to be a part of. Thank you, Len Jones, for being a part of our bat ceremony and Steve Krull, for videoing our special day.”

Clay Cary is the manager of Dudley Lightning 60, and Len Jones and Steve Krull play with Suncoast Midwest 60s.
