McCutchen to appear on 'Ellen' today; Tease shows Cutch proposing


PITTSBURGH - Andrew McCutchen is scheduled to appear on The Ellen DeGeneres show on Wednesday -- and fans are likely going to watch him propose to his girlfriend!

In a Vine video posted on Ellen's account, the six second video shows Cutch getting on one knee. 

McCutchen’s publicist, John Fuller, posted a photo on Instagram earlier this week, saying “I think we'll have a new #Pirates fan come Wednesday!” The photo is a Pirates jersey with Ellen's name on it. 

Here’s what Ellen’s website says about Wednesday’s show:

 “They call him ‘The Cutch.’ Pittsburgh Pirate ANDREW McCUTCHEN swings by for his first appearance on the show! The National League MVP had an incredible year, bringing the Pirates back into the spotlight with a long list of accomplishments that include his 100th career stolen base and 100th career home run. With Andrew front and center, the Pirates made it to the playoffs for the first time since 1992! Not only has the star athlete used his skills to achieve greatness on the field, he's also worked to inspire more African-American youths to join the game by serving as a mentor and leader."
