It’s often said that baseball is America’s pastime.

Jim Mickunas couldn’t agree more with that. Rather than finishing an entire song during the father-daughter dance at his daughter’s wedding, Jim did something different. He switched it up with some very unexpected props: two mitts and a baseball.
His daughter is stunned.
With a simple throw, the bride and her father are reminded of something so special that they’ve bonded with over the years.
As he says in the video’s description: “My daughter has always found her own path. She played Flag football at 6. She hated wearing dresses. She wore a tuxedo to her first communion. She lettered in Soccer and Track.
She then became an Engineer for the largest automaker in the world when she was 22. I could not imagine having a traditional father daughter dance with her. That is not what we were or are…So I came up with this. – She had no idea!”
The real kicker comes when the proverbial torch is passed from father to groom. That first pitch to her new husband couldn’t be more symbolic.
Here’s the Takeaway: Just like this beautiful bride and her dad simply passing a baseball at her wedding, we all have tiny acts of love that are so dear to our hearts. Never lose sight of that with your loved ones!
