IN THE GAME
IU Southeast baseball coach
plans unforgettable proposal
The IU Southeast baseball field served as the backdrop when
Ben Reel, IU Southeast head baseball coach, proposed to his
girlfriend of four years, Morgan Hayden, in June.
Reel and Hayden rode in a helicopter that flew over the
baseball field. The infield had the message “Marry Me?”
painted from third base to first base.
“The field is something that has been in our lives for many
years,” Reel said. “We spend many hours at the field
together: in season, in the summer, as well as the off-season.
I felt like using the field in the proposal was very fitting
because it is a big part of our lives.”
