Watch The Heartwarming Moment This Military Dad Surprises His Kids At A Local Baseball Game

He hit it out of the park.

When brother and sister Karley and Cameron Daigle took the mound as the honorary first pitchers at a Carolina Mudcats baseball game in Zebulon, North Carolina, they were the ones thrown a curve ball. 

After the catcher caught the children's pitches, he gave them their balls — and a game-changing surprise. Taking off his catcher's mask, he revealed himself to be the siblings' father, Air Force Technical Sergeant Lance Daigle, back after a six-month deployment to Southwest Asia. 

The kids gasped when they saw their father before embracing him with hugs and happy tears. Clearly, his surprise hit it out of the park. 


Watch the heartwarming reunion below, and just try not to get misty-eyed yourself:

Since the Caroline Mudcats Baseball Club posted the video to Facebook on April 26, it has garnered more than two million views and 25,000 shares. So while baseball might be considered America's national pastime, spreading the love is a pretty close second.
