Dad Returns From Kuwait, Surprises Aberdeen Family at Ballgame
Edward Byars had been stationed in Kuwait for almost a year.
Little did Bryce, 6, know, the man donning the catcher's gear behind the plate was Edward Byars—his father, who had been deployed in Kuwait for 11 months.
After the pitch, Edward removed his mask, and surprised his Aberdeen family—his wife, Marion, 13-year-old daughter Brianna, and Bryce—in a moment that those in attendance will never forget.
The moment came before Saturday's game between the Maryland representatives from Calvert County, and the Mountain Home, AR team.
The Byars are a host family for Team Canada.
