WATCH: Soldier Surprises Son at Minor League Baseball Game

By David Kenyon

Videos of military homecomings are the best.

On Friday night, the Tennessee Smokies—a Double-A affiliate of the Chicago Cubs—engineered a wonderful, touching moment for a soldier and his son.

The Smokies brought the son of Sgt. Adam Dowell onto the field for a between-inning game and placed a blindfold on the young boy. When he turned around, the little Dowell in an Army t-shirt noticed a familiar face: his dad.

Take a look at the tear-inducing clip.

Forget the dust question, man. These are real tears. Well done, Smokies.

Welcome home, Sgt. Dowell.
