The Air Force and Major League Baseball (MLB) recently came together to reunite a Sachse native with his wife and daughter.
Staff Sergeant Cole Condiff had been deployed for six months when he got a call from his captain. MLB wanted to bring Condiff home early and help him surprise his family at the July 17 All-Star game in Washington, D.C.
“It was a lot of deceiving on my end,” Condiff said. “My wife, Rachael, doesn’t like a lot of attention so I had to make up an excuse for her to want to come out.”
The sergeant told his family that he would not be able to come home, and sent a video of himself saying hello to everyone. The video aired at the game and Rachael was honored as a military spouse. Then Condiff walked into the stadium to greet his family in real life.
