Injured Fan Hits Home Run With Free Wedding at Fenway Park

A 100 mph line-drive foul ball ricocheted off her forehead in July.

Matt Fraenze, Wapenski's fiance, who was with her when the ball hit her during a Red Sox-Yankees game, will get to slip a diamond on his bride's finger on the diamond that Wapenski, a self-described Sox "superfan," loves the most: Fenway.

"I'm honestly still in shock. I can believe that it's real and it's going to happen," Wapenski told ABC News, saying that after the July incident, the team had kept in touch and asked her if there was anything they could do. "We thought we might as well ask," the bride-to-be said.

Wapenski has been a lifelong Red Sox fan -- something she shares with her dad. She has been to about 120 Red Sox Games and has a Red Sox tattoo. When Franze proposed last year, he did it at Fenway because he knew how much the place means to her.

"I think of it as like a second home. To be proposed to there obviously was -- he completely shocked me," the 36-year-old said of Fraenze, who roots for a rival team. "Him being a Yankees fan, it really was above and beyond."

The team waived the venue fee -- about $10,000 -- for the wedding, which will take place on Nov. 11. The couple is taking care of planning the rest.

Wapenski and Fraenze were celebrating the anniversary of their engagement sitting six rows up from the third-base line when the bride-to-be was hit by a 100 mile per hour foul ball zooming off the bat of Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorious. The ball bounced against her forehead, leaving her needing more than 30 stitches.

Wapenski's was the second such incident at Fenway this summer; just a few weeks earlier, another fan, Tonya Carpenter, was injured by part of a broken bat that flew into the stands.

As for the wedding, there's much to plan, and some ideas include featuring red and blue somewhere in the party.

"It's just really great to have it come full circle," Wapenski said.
