On Thursday night, nine-year-old Alayna Adams threw out the ceremonial first pitch for the Tampa Bay Rays-Boston Red Sox game. She figured that the catcher behind the plate was a Rays catcher, but when the catcher took of the mask, her father Army Lieutenant Colonel William T. Adams was behind the mask. Adams had been deployed in Afghanistan for one-year and the reaction on his daughter’s face his priceless. Another great heartwarming moment.
