Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Alex Cobb proposes to his girlfriend with the help of a bottlenose dolphin

ORLANDO - With Valentine's Day just around the corner, a baseball player knocked his marriage proposal out of the park.

Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Alex Cobb proposed to his girlfriend, Kelly Reynolds, with some help from an Atlantic bottlenose dolphin. The two were swimming at the Discovery Cove in Orlando, when the dolphin approached Reynolds with a buoy in his mouth that read, "Kelly, will you marry me?"

Surprised, she grabbed the buoy and turned to Cobb saying, "What?" As tears began to rundown Reynolds face with joy, Cobb, in water suit and all, dropped to a knee and asked for her hand in marriage. Reynolds said, "Yeah," nodding her head in excitement.

Cobb placed the ring on his future bride’s finger and then celebrated with family and friends throughout the day at the park.
