Army Dad Surprises Daughter At Baseball Game

Why are they cutting onions in my office this morning? It's horrible.

quote:

Sure, you've probably seen your fair share of family reunions at sporting events, but let's be honest: They never get old.

And in case you needed another reason to watch this clip, we present 5-year-old Hailey Sandoval. The youngster recently threw out the first pitch at a San Antonio Missions game. Little did she know, the man wearing the catcher's mask behind home plate was none other than her father, Army Sgt. Alvino Sandoval. Sgt. Sandoval had recently returned from a six-month tour of duty in Afghanistan.

At first Hailey doesn't realize that it's her dad behind home plate. But when she does, her face is priceless.

This is a cool story. Saw it on the news.

When I was in Afghanistan, I made a moral call to my wife at my house and no one answered so I called her cell phone.

She was at my daughter's ball game. I talked to her and then my son and then they handed my daughter the phone but she was about to come up to bat. The coaches wife ran out to the ump and explained that she was on the phone talking to her dad in Afghanistan so he held up the game.




Damn onions.

I love these kinds of stories. I didn't have kids when I was deployed, but I still get choked up remembering when I met my wife (girlfriend at the time) at the airport, or hugging mom when I got home. The pure joy in those moments are priceless.

You guys just don't know how proud you are going to make your kids one day when they realized the sacrifice you've made for all of us. Thank You for what you do.
