Dad Surprises Son with Awesome Present After Convincing Him He Forgot His Birthday (Video)

dad surprises son baseball bat viral video

A dad from Pennsylvania is a social media star after video of his birthday surprise for his son went viral.

Devon Fowler is currently unemployed. His son, Braheim Fowler, plays Little League baseball for the Taney Dragons in the Philadelphia area, and he recently celebrated his 12th birthday. However, Devon told his son that he did not have any presents for him.

Here’s the thing, though. Devon Fowler did have a present for his son. He had an awesome present. He just wanted to surprise him. So when the two of them got into their van to head to Braheim’s baseball game, Devon told his sulking son to go grab a bag for him out of the trunk. Then he made sure the camera was rolling when his son looked in the back of the van and found the shiny new baseball bat he wanted.

Take a look:

That bat, in case you were wondering, is the Easton 2015 YB15MKT MAKO TORQ-10 Youth Baseball Bat, and it ain’t cheap. The thing goes for $151 on Amazon.

Fowler told NBC 10 Philadelphia that he did not expect that reaction from his son.

“It definitely surprised me. I was expecting him to be happy but I didn’t expect him to get so emotional.”

Something tells me Devon Fowler is not going to be unemployed for long.
