A soldier returns home before deployment and surprises his brother
United States Air Force Senior Airman Bryce King was the special guest of honor at today's game between the Dodgers and the Reds. SrA King is stationed at McConnell Air Force Base in Kansas, but is deploying to Afghanistan for six months. Before he left, however, he was able to come home for Thanksgiving, and his family decided to surprise his brother, Dodgers catcher Alex King. I was honored to be asked to photograph Alex's reaction as he found out that the oddly dressed umpire was, in fact, his brother!
Thanks to team manager Larry and to the League's officials for allowing me to capture this special moment.
