This story will bring a tear to your eye. Meet 9-year old Alayna Adams from Dunedin, Florida. She threw out the first pitch at Thursday night’s Rays – Red Sox game, but before she threw out the first pitch, she watched a special message on the big screen from her father, Lt. Col. Will Adams. Alayna still thinking her father was in Afghanistan, had no idea the guy wearing the mask behind the plate was her dad. He caught the ball, removed his mask and from there it was all hugs and tears, as father and daughter were reunited.



 The Tampa Bay Times has details of the combined efforts of the Rays and the USO to surprise Alayna.
