Schuerholz's plan was put into action before Wednesday night's game against the Nationals. After throwing the first pitch to his father, Jake Murphy grabbed the microphone, dropped to a knee and proposed to his girlfriend, Arianne Ingersoll.
"It was really a nice moment," the elder Murphy. "We really enjoyed it."
Murphy has had many of his children with him during his current stay in Braves camp. Jake, 22, is a tight end at the University of Utah.
