Kelly Johnson is off the market ladies...

According to AJC's Carroll Rogers, Atlanta Braves' second baseman, Kelly Johnson, proposed to his girlfriend. Johnson, who has made a difficult transition to second base from the outfield look extremely easy, took his long-time girlfriend, Lauren Thacker, out to dinner at her favorite restaurant in Atlanta, the Horseradish Grill. He then broke down, leading Lauren to believe something was wrong, he then proposed.

"I broke down," Johnson said. "She didn't know what was going on. She thought something was wrong."

By the time he got the proposal out, John
son said, she was in tears too. Thacker grew up in Atlanta and graduated from Georgia Tech with a degree in industrial engineering.

The couple well be having the wedding in January of 2008.

ith Kelly Johnson now getting married, and Francouer doing the same, that leaves Braves' catcher, Brian McCann, as the only remaining member of the "Baby Braves" that is still single and on the Braves roster(I believe??). Looks like Kelly Johnson will have to surrender his partying card, no more late nights at the bars with random girls.
