Tear Jerker: Deployed dad makes surprise return

Disguised as catcher while daughter throws first pitch.

quote:

This one might get you misty: Nine-year-old Alayna Adams threw out the first pitch beforeThursday's Tampa Bay Rays-Boston Red Sox game. She was told she'd been selected by the U.S.O. for the honor, partially because her father, Lt. Col. Will Adams, had been deployed overseas in Afghanistan for most of the past two years.Before Alayna threw her pitch, a message from Dad played on the video board, saying he'd see her soon. Indeed he would.Because it turned out the whole thing was a ruse orchestrated by the U.S.O and the Rays. Lt. Col. Will Adams was, in fact, dressed in catcher's gear, crouching behind home plate, awaiting the throw from his daughter.


quote:

"That was the hardest part. Being back home and not being able to see them."

Almost 2 years? I bet that girl of his had grown 6 inches since he last saw her.
