Father catches son’s home run hit with surprise birthday bat (vid)
Just about a year ago exactly a video went viral that showed a father surprising his son with a new bat after pretending he forgot his son’s birthday. It made for an emotional scene, to say the least, as the youngster was overwhelmed by the surprise gift.
The original full video of the touching scene has since been deleted. But in it, the father, Devon Fowler, says to his son Braheim, “Happy birthday. I didn’t forget about you. I want to see some home runs.”
And on July 17, Braheim did just that, smacking a homer during a game. And wouldn’t you know it? Devon not only was recording the round-tripper, he managed to secure the home run ball at the same time.
Devon Fowler calls the scene that played out at the ball field last week as a “priceless moment” in the YouTube video’s description. That sounds about right.
