How We Met

Taylor Cooper is a high school baseball coach at Rose Bud, Arkansas. They met playing coed softball together. Shelby Webb and Taylor Cooper have been dating for a year, enduring the sports life together. They quickly fell in love knowing they were with the person they were meant to spend forever with. Their lives revolve around sports, especially baseball, and they both love every minute of it.

how they asked

At the season opener game, Coach Cooper told Shelby that his team voted for her to throw the “first pitch” of their ballgame. She agreed to do so, knowing the stress of baseball season on her coaching boyfriend, did not expect any type of surprise. She proudly threw her strike.

Cooper met her at the pitcher’s mound and got down on one knee. A player stood at each base holding signs “will you marry me”

Shelby said YES of course. & every team member congratulated her with a rose.

( I joked with him and asked if I threw a ball if he still would have proposed…I must have won him over with my pitching skills )
