Soldier Surprises Son With First Pitch [VIDEO]

I found this video over the weekend and had to share.  July 4th is a week away and this story fits right in with that.  Check out this CNN video of a soldier who surprises his son at his little league game by throwing out the first pitch.  The part that put a lump in my throat was when the dad says "he learned how to catch while I was gone."  I can't even imagine being gone serving my country for so long that I miss out on playing catch with my son.  Thanks to all the men and women who make that very sacrifice so that we can keep the freedoms that we have.  I salute you!  Video after the jump.

The catcher stayed calm and simply stood on home plate and looked over at the home plate umpire as the umpire called the runner out.  Check out the video after the jump.
