Most kids love a surprise, but a little boy in Arkansas got a surprise reunion that swept him off his feet.
Jett Morris plays Little League in Cabot, Arkansas. This year, he was chosen to play in a Little League tournament. The tournament raises money each year to honor fallen firefighters.
Jett stepped out to throw the first pitch of the game. At home plate, a catcher in a helmet and mask crouched down, ready to catch the ball.
As soon as the ball cleared the plate, the catcher stood up. He removed his mask, and Jett recognized his father. It was a surprise visit home.
Jett screamed, “Dad!” as he threw his glove to the ground and raced to home plate. His dad swept him up for a hug.
Jett’s sisters Alexa and Saylor were also on hand to share in a family hug.
A SURPRISE LEAVE
Jett’s dad is in the Navy. Lieutenant Commander Joe Morris has been serving overseas for over a year. This week, he received leave to visit his family.
In a video that has gained thousands of views, you can see the whole family share the joy of the surprise meeting. That’s one surprise that will be hard to top.
