Maj. Robert Sides had a surprise in store for his son earlier this week at Kauffmann Stadium in Kansas City.
His son, Austin, was selected to throw out the ceremonial first pitch. Sides put on a uniform and full catcher’s gear to catch the ball, and then surprised his son.
“I almost lost it myself. I grew up a pitcher, throwing with my dad and to be able to do this with my son after being gone all year, Facetime only goes so far. You need the contact and I miss that so much,” Sides said, according to Cut4.
Sides was stationed at Ali Al Salem Air Base in Kuwait since June of last year, according to Cut4.
