Put a ring on it
Peter Coolbaugh brought his future bride, Renee A. Coshin, to the Hall of Fame on Monday to see the Museum’s collection of World Series rings.
Peter proposed to Renee on Monday on the Museum’s third floor, and received the “yes” he was hoping for. The two Museum Members have known each other for about four years and have bonded through the National Pastime.
“Sports has been a huge part of our relationship,” said a tearful Renee, who was shocked when Peter popped the question. “But I had no idea he was going to do this here.”
Both Peter and Renee live in Baltimore and attend dozens of Orioles games each year. They are planning their wedding for the fall of 2013.
“I wanted to do this before Opening Day, and I think she was wondering when – not if – I was going to propose,” Peter said. “What better place to do it than right here in front of the World Series rings at the Hall of Fame.”
