A soldier gave his wife the surprise of a lifetime Friday night before a minor league baseball game.

Darla Harlow was given the honor of tossing out the first pitch at an M-Braves game. When the throw's catcher approached to give the ceremonial ball to her, she realized it was her husband, Michael Harlow.

Harlow, an army major, was returning from a nine-month stint in Afghanistan.

The team helped Michael and his daughters set up the surprise for his wife after learning they are big M-Braves fans.

"She didn't faint," the soldier-turned-catcher said. "The last time I surprised her she fainted."
