As you are the serious Red Sox fan....

As you are a member of Red Sox Nation...

As you love baseball like no other fan in baseball... you didn't miss the Red Sox home opener today at Fenway, right?

Well, if you happen to have missed David Ortiz's last home opener this evening, you missed an epic surprise the Red Sox pulled together for him.

His little baby girl was snuck into the opening moments of the game and he was moved to tears.

Alex Ortiz can sing (video), knocking it out of the park just like daddy has done for so many years!

It was reported by Ian Browne that when Alex finished singing, she got a hug from daddy. "He said to me, 'Don't ever surprise me like that again."

"I didn't actually think it would work, but we found a way to do it," said Alex Ortiz. "We had Carolina [Martinez], Pedro's wife, come down so it looked like we were just watching [the ceremony]. It worked."

"I wanted him to be emotional." said Alex Ortiz. "Somebody told me that he cried and I was like, 'Yes.'"
