WATCH: Carlos Correa foul ball bounces to fiancee Daniella Rodriguez

The connection between Astros shortstop Carlos Correa and his fiancee, Daniella Rodriguez, reached a new level Wednesday night.

Correa, playing for Double-A Corpus Christi on a rehab assignment, hit a foul ball that landed in Rodriguez’s hands after it bounced off a railing and just missed a kid who was on his device.

SN POWER RANKINGS: Astros higher than Red Sox?

Correa joked with that he meant to do that.

“Haha, I was totally trying to hit it to her,” he wrote to the website in a Twitter direct message. “Nah, I couldn’t believe it when the guys told me! It was a cool moment for her, she was super excited!”

MINOR MADNESS: Triple-A teammates hit for cycle in same game 

Rodriguez tweeted her about her catch (we’re talking about the foul ball in this case):

No word on whether the distracted youngster eventually wound up with the ball.

Correa proposed to Rodriguez, a onetime Miss Texas USA, on national TV right after the Astros’ Game 7 victory in last year’s World Series (she said yes). The two now have another neat story to tell about their engagement.
