Soldier surprised children with homecoming at Diamondbacks game

PHOENIX (FOX 10) - Three kids got a very special surprise at the Arizona Diamondbacks spring training game Tuesday night.

Sienna, 12, Dominique, 6, and Max, 3, were participating in the Hot Dog Race when they saw a surprise waiting for them at the finish line: their dad who just returned home from Afghanistan.

Sean Trickett was serving overseas as an Afghan Special Operations Brigade Advisor. He has served 18 years in the Marine Corps and Army.

Trickett's wife Patty was also there at the finish line. It was a happy and tearful reunion for the family.

Baseball fans at the game also stood up and cheered to give Trickett a warm welcome home.
