Georgina Walton, Air Force Staff Sgt, returned home from deployment and decided to do it in a big way! Her son Brody got to throw the first pitch at a Charleston RiverDogs game and she surprised him when he was done.
“He just stared at me and his eyes got big and teary,” Walton told ABC News. “He couldn’t say anything. He was very stunned. He didn’t say anything until he was almost in the locker rooms and I asked him, ‘Are you ok?’ and he said, ‘I’m just so excited.’”
Her song recently turned 6 and was quite upset that his mom wound’t be home for his birthday.
“I looked online at the events happening around here to surprise him,” she said. “The RiverDogs game was one of the events. I grew up going to the RiverDogs and always loved it. He’s been raised to love sports, so I contacted them, and it was his first game there ever.”
“And I’m so grateful to serve our country too, and be a part of the Air Force. I’m so grateful for everything they’ve given me.”
