The Look On This Kid’s Face When He Realizes Dad Didn’t Forget His Birthday
Will tug at anyone’s heartstrings.
Below you will find a truly touching moment between a father and son. But let us briefly set the stage first.
The young ball player’s name is Braheim Fowler, and he plays for the Taney Dragons Little League team in Philadelphia. It was Braheim’s 12th birthday recently and his father, Devon, had been pretending all day that he did not get his son a present.
“I told him I had nothing for him,” Devon told local affiliate NBC10. “He had an attitude all day.”
Now you’re ready to watch the video:
Before the big surprise, Braheim was so upset that he could not even look at his father when the two initially got in the car.
But his disappointing birthday quickly turned into the exact opposite after his dad instructed him to get a bag out of the back. When Braheim opened the trunk, he noticed an Amazon box instead of a bag. Immediately, his disappointed demeanor vanished.
The moment he got a look inside the box, Braheim started to tear up, and his father followed suit.
“Don’t cry,” Devon can be heard saying to his son as his voice shook with emotion, “You’re about to make me cry!”
Still tearing, Braheim pulled out a neon green baseball bat, the exact one he wanted for his birthday.
“I want to see some home runs,” Devon told his son as he gave him a big birthday hug.
And Tom Hanks said there’s no crying in baseball.
