Soldier Surprises Wife at Baseball Game
Heartwarming moments are becoming as common at the ballpark as home runs these days as another U.S. soldier had a surprise reunion with his family at a baseball game. Darla Harlow came out to Trustman Park in Pearl, Miss. because she had won free tickets for her and her daughters for a game between the Mississippi Braves and the visiting Carolina Mucats. At least, that's what she thought. And, once she arrived, she thought that she was randomly selected to toss out a ceremonial first pitch. How lucky and strange, she must have thought. But after tossing a one-hopper into the catcher's mitt, the thrill of her night was yet to come. Because the man behind the catcher's mask, who was wearing a Braves jersey, was none other than her husband: Army Major Mike Harlow. Although it took her a second to even recognize him, her shock was apparent and heartwarming.
