On Wednesday, he dressed up in catcher’s gear and caught the first pitches his son and daughter threw out at the Carolina Mudcats’ stadium in Zebulon, North Carolina.

“We have a special Mudcats player catching those first pitched,” the announcer said as the kids approached the pitcher. When he took off his mask, the kids screamed “Dad!” and jumped into his arms.
