A True Homecoming Surprise, Hiding Behind Home Plate
TAMPA, FLORIDA — One lucky fan at a baseball game in Tampa was far luckier than she could have ever imagined.
Nine-year-old Alayna Adams got the surprise of her life when she threw out the first pitch to start the game.
Alayna had been told that she’d been selected by the U.S.O. to throw out the pitch in honor of her father, Col. Will Adams, who’d been deployed overseas for the past two years.
But after Alayna threw the pitch, the catcher behind home plate pulled off his mask — and it was none other than Col. Adams himself, home to surprise his family!
Col. Adams’ homecoming was also a complete surprise to his wife Dana. The video of the surprise family reunion has gone viral, and has become an Internet sensation.
