Captain Ellis said "I'm hoping I do my job, but it's going to be a special, special thing."
He was waited in the Travs dugout as his son made his way to the pitcher's mound to throw out the first pitch. Then at the right moment Captain Ellis went to home plate to catch his son's pitch. It was the first game of catch this father/son duo has played since Captain Ellis' return from duty.
After 8-year-old Jack threw the pitch, his dad told him, "Hey you keep this ball, you'll remember it, you did a great job."
Jack said after the pitch, "I thought it was awesome.
Captain Ellis will be only be home until is called to duty once again.
