Following the Kihei Centipedes and Pacific Hurricanes game on October 7, Ben Dombrowski proposed to Leah Mark during an on-field picture with both teams. Ben and Leah are longtime members of the Maui Adult Baseball League who moved to California last spring and were back on Maui for a visit.
Ben was an original member of the league, playing 18 seasons with the Upcountry Dirtbags and the Hurricanes before moving last March. He served as the Hurricanes manager and is a member of the exclusive 200 games club.
Leah played parts of 9 season as a member of the inaugural West Maui Brewers, the Hawaiian Navigators, and the Hurricanes. She was also responsible for compiling the league stats prior to their move.
How can you not be romantic about baseball? Congratulations to Leah and Ben on their engagement!
