Nine-year-old Alayna Adams had just watched a video of her father, Lieutenant Colonel Will Adams, on the big screen at the Trop before throwing the ceremonial pitch at Thursday night's Tampa Bay Rays game.
What came next might make your eyes water.
Unbeknownst to his family, Lt. Colonel Adams was not only at the game to see her pitch, but he was the man behind the plate dressed in catcher's gear.
After she bounced the pitch to the catcher, her father revealed himself to her by taking off his mask -- the reaction from Alayna was priceless as she raced to home plate and lept into his arms.
Get your tissues ready and enjoy this video.
