Army specialist surprises wife after first pitch at Minor League baseball game

NORFOLK (WAVY) – Madi O’Hara thought she’d won a contest to throw out the first pitch at Harbor Park before the Tides were set to face the Toledo Mud Hens. She had no idea who was dressed in Tides gear, waiting to catch the pitch.

Behind home plate was her husband, Army specialist Rafe O’Hara, who had returned home to Norfolk a week early.

Madi threw the pitch, and couldn’t contain her emotion when she saw her husband take off the catcher’s helmet.
