Jenkintown resident feat. in The Inquirer for Phillies tailgate, dizzy bat marriage proposal

Danielle DiCiacco, a resident of Jenkintown and graduate of St. Basil Academy, was recently featured in The Philadelphia Inquirer in an article titled “Sparks in the stands and dizzy bat proposals: Your Phillies love stories”.

The article describes various marriage proposals that have come as a result of The Philadelphia Phillies in one way or another.

DiCacco’s entry is as follows:

Dizzy with glee for a tailgate engagement

“My husband Dan proposed to me at a Phillies tailgate with all of my family and friends there in 2019. We were in Lot G playing dizzy bat — which is this game where you spin around a baseball bat for the same number of seconds that you chugged a drink for — when he proposed.

“When I looked up from spinning around for 10 seconds, I expected him to pitch me the ball but instead he was on one knee! I stumbled, slammed the bat down like Rhys Hoskins, and said yes. We got married in July 2021.” — Danielle DiCiacco, 30, Jenkintown
