The 2019 college baseball season is young, but this is guaranteed to be one of the best ceremonial first pitches you’ll see all year.

Mississippi State hosted a military homecoming for the first pitch ahead of Friday’s baseball game. As you can see in the video below, the family of Sgt. 1st Class Connerley is on the field watching a video message before tossing out the first pitch. After the pitch, Connerley, in Mississippi State uniform, takes off the catcher’s mask to reveal he caught the pitch.
