Some stories seem too good to be true, and this is one of those stories. Last year, a video of a dad giving a baseball bat to his son went completely viral. In the video, the son had thought that his father had forgotten his birthday. However, his father surprised him when they got to the game.


Braheim Fowler thought his dad forgot his birthday. Little did he know it was all part of his father’s plan.

In a strange twist of fate, this was not the end of the story. A year later, the son came through with a home run to center field. What is even weirder still, is that the home run landed in his dad’s hand, while he was videotaping the at-bat!

This may be one of the coolest and most heartwarming stories in sports. Hopefully it doesn’t fly under the radar!
