Video: Dad home from Afghanistan surprises daughter at Rays game

(WJBK) -

A touching moment on the mound in Tampa Bay.

Nine-year-old Alayna Adams was chosen to throw out the first pitch at Thursday night's Red Sox vs. Rays game. What she didn't know was that her father, Lt. Col. Will Adams, who had just returned from a two-year tour in Afghanistan, was behind the plate.

As Alayna walks back to the stands, Will removes the catcher's mask and Alayna sprints into his arms. Shortly after, the entire family reunited on the field.
