TOKYO – Seattle Mariners shortstop Brendan Ryan is coming back to Seattle with a .143 average, a split of the season opening series with Oakland … and a fiance’.

MLB.com reports Ryan proposed to his girlfriend, Sharyn, on the Sky Deck on the 54th floor of the Mori Tower in Tokyo this week. He apparently bought the ring and planned this out months ago.

Ryan said he even got Ichiro Suzuki’s interpreter, Antony Suzuki, to teach him how to say “Will you marry me?” in Japanese.

"So I dropped that on her," Ryan said. "When she asked me what that meant I got down on a knee. It was kind of cool."

Sharyn said yes.
