The Spokane Indians and their fans got a teary reminder Monday that, after all, baseball is still just a game. Some things are much more important.

The celebration started early at the ballpark, as Sergeant Chris Weichman surprised his wife Abby and twin daughters, Gracie and Ruby in the middle of the fourth inning. Weichman had just returned from his third tour in Afghanistan at 6 a.m. that day. The young family received a long standing ovation from the crowd.

And in a side note: the Indians won the game 1-0.
