Maybe the Hunter Pence hecklers will back off on his wedding day.

The offbeat Giants outfielder announced his engagement to Alexis Cozombolidis on Thursday, posting a video of his surprise proposal on Twitter.

“SHE SAID YES!! I am the happiest man ever,” Pence tweeted with the clip.

Over nine seasons, Hunter Pence is batting .284 with 194 homers, 729 RBI and 106 stolen bases.

The two-time World Series winner popped the question at Disney World in Orlando, Fla.

“From this trip, my best memory I think is right now,” he says in the clip, before dropping to one knee and addressing his future wife as fireworks explode in the background.

Cozombolidis, a broadcaster with video game-focused Twitch.tv, agreed to marry Pence before the clearly nervous ballplayer could even get all the words out.

“There is no way I would ever say ‘no’ — ever,” she said.

The right fielder — who’s often mocked by sign-holding fans with lighthearted burns such as “Hunter Pence can’t parallel park” — was limited to 52 games last year due to wrist and oblique injuries.

Because 2016 will be an even-numbered year, he can likely expect another championship ring to join his coming wedding ring. The Giants won it all in 2010, 2012 and 2014.
