Do you want to propose to your sweetheart at a Major League Baseball game? Well, you can - but it is going to cost you.

New research by Molly Fitzpatrick at Swimmingly has revealed just how much MLB teams are charging to allow couples onto the outfield to ask the big question - and if you happen to live in Los Angeles, it's going to cost you a pretty penny.

Last week it was revealed that the Dodgers have the highest wage bill in the league, well above the New York Yankees - and it seems they are trying to cover the cost of paying their stars by charging an eye-watering $2,500 in order to allow romantically-minded men onto the field and get down on one knee.

Other teams who may force you to buy a slightly cheaper ring include Philadelphia Phillies and the Saint Louis Cardinals who both want $500 to play host to your memorable moment.

The Yankees are in the spirit of things however - one of the most famous name in Baseball ask for a mere $100 to help you put a ring on it. The Boston Red Sox want slightly more - $350.

Washington National lotharios don't get off too easily either - they will have to fork out the princely sum of $1,500 to ask for their partners hand in marriage at a game.

Would-be Cassanova's with an eye on the purse strings might want to consider switching their allegiances to the Atalanta Braves, Colorado Rockies, Cincinnati Reds - who all charge just $50 a pop to be allowed to pop the question. The Pittsburgh Pirates ask for just $39, and will even put your proposal message on their big screen too.

However not all MLB franchises are in on the act - killjoys Toronto Blue Jays, Los Angeles Angels, Kansas City Royals, Baltimore Orioles, New York Mets don't allow wedding proposals on the outfield during games.
