Heartwarming: Military Dad Surprises Daughter Behind Home Plate

Alayna Adams was living a dream as she prepared to throw out the first pitch Thursday night before thousands of Tampa Bay Rays fans at Tropicana Field.

Her father, a lieutenant colonel stationed in Afghanistan for most of the past two years, appeared on the stadium video screen. He said hello and told his daughter he would see her soon...

...maybe a bit sooner than she imagined.

As you watch, try to remember -- "There's no crying in baseball! There's no crying in baseball!"
