They say that fortune favors the bold, and there are few gestures as bold as the ballpark proposal. Alas, as one Yankee fan learned during New York’s 6-4 win over the Red Sox on Tuesday, fortune has some ground rules before it grants you the Vin Scully soundtrack of your wildest dreams.

That’s Andrew Fox of New Castle, Pa., seen just moments after discovering that the box he thought held his engagement ring actually held … nothing.

MLB.com caught up with the eventually happy couple for a quick Facebook Live chat, and Fox gave us an explanation: Apparently, the ring popped right out as soon as the box was opened — while he was on one knee.
