Dad’s surprise baseball gift goes viral

PHILADELPHIA, PA (WTNH) — A dad’s surprise goes viral after tricking his son with a brand new baseball bat that he had hidden for his birthday.

NBC10 reports Devon Fowler told son, 12-year-old Braheim Fowler, that he was not getting anything for his 12th birthday.

“I told him I had nothing for him,” Fowler said. “He had an attitude all day.”

Braheim is a little league baseball player for the Taney Dragons in Philadelphia.

Fowler told his son Braheim to get a bag out of the trunk. Braheim opens the trunk and finds his surprise: a completely new baseball bat.

The video shared on social media shows Braheim crying and overwhelmed with emotion while dad, Devon starts choking up too.

“Don’t cry! You’re about to make me cry!” Devon said. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
