Jim Mickunas’ daughter Kandice came together on the dance floor to sway gently to Louis Armstrong’s classic hit, What A Wonderful World, for the father daughter wedding dance. But after a few moments, he pulls away from her, and someone passes a pair of baseball gloves to the father-daughter duo. That’s when the daughter catches on to what her dad’s doing. With John Fogerty’s Centerfield playing in the background, Jim and Kandice play a game of catch on the dance floor.

The proud dad explained the rationale behind his surprise on his YouTube channel, writing:

“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!”

As if the moment wasn’t touching enough, Jim then beckoned his new son-in-law and passed his glove off to him, to take his place playing catch with his daughter. Walking off the dance floor, he watched the newlyweds passing the baseball back and forth. After the final toss of the ball, Kandice went over and hugged her dad for the surprise. It’s truly a heartwarming video.
