After a six-month deployment in Asia with the US Air Force, Lance Daigle was ready to come home to his family, but he didn't return without a bit of American flare. Using the country's pastime as a muse, Daigle set up a surprise for his two kids, Cameron and Karley, with help from the Carolina Mudcats Baseball Club. His kids were under the impression that they'd won VIP tickets to the ball game with the added perk of throwing out the first pitches, however, they got the ultimate surprise of their lives when it was Lance who removed the catcher's mask at home plate following their pitches.

The heartwarming surprise is guaranteed to choke you up, and we're sure there couldn't have been a dry eye in that stadium.
