Ross Perez Catches Emotional First Pitch from His Father

Great surprise.

Ross Perez is having one of the best seasons of his professional career. Friday night, it got a little bit better. The 24-year old catcher was told that he would be catching the ceremonial first pitch before the game. What he didn't know is that his father would be tossing it. Santiago Perez had never seen his son play in a professional game before Friday night.

There's nothing quite like a surprise at the ballpark.
