It's a little league game one family will never forget.
Captain Ed Maxa surprised his children by coming home after a year away during the middle of his son's baseball game.
The soldier hugged his daughter and three sons near home plate, while his wife cried tears of joy.
He says it was his wife's idea to use the backdrop of America's past time for the special surprise.
"You have to give all the credit to my wife, because she did all the planning, so I just kind of showed up. But I'm glad to be home," said Capt. Ed Maxa.
Maxa had been serving in New Jersey and Afghanistan with the army reserves.
