On August 1, 1993, brothers and avid baseball fans Dominic and Mario Ortiz married their fiancées, Terry Lopez and Halaine Hall, in a double wedding ceremony at the Astrodome before an Astros game. (The Astros were playing the Atlanta Braves. They lost 3-2.) Judge Alexander Green presided over the ceremony. Dominic reportedly later threw the first pitch of the game.
