Dad Literally Leaps For Joy When 4-Yr-Old Son Hits 1st Home Run.

As a parent, seeing your child succeed is even better than knocking one out of the park yourself. Just ask Cory Willig, a former independent league baseball player from Suwanee, Georgia!

He loves playing his favorite sport with his 4-year-old son Ash. The two of them started practicing outside their house nonstop during the early days of COVID-19, so they eventually headed to a local field to hit balls on a real field.

Cory set up a camera to record his son in action, which was fortuitous because Ash picked that particular day to hit his first home run! His dad was so excited that he couldn’t help leaping into the air, showing everyone exactly how a proud parent looks when his son gets an early taste of greatness.

Watch Cory’s adorable reaction in the video below, and don’t forget to share this story to make someone smile.
