SEE IT: New Nats signee Robert Anthony Cruz surprises father originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington
Turning dreams into reality can be overwhelming for some, particularly those close enough to know the amount of hard work got them there.
For the father of Robert Anthony Cruz, the emotions were running high. Cruz, the young undrafted free agent who in his Instagram post spoke of agreeing to his first professional contract with the Nationals, made sure to give the news to his father in person.
Surprising his father with the new Nationals hat Cruz likely received after signing, the two embraced in a proud moment for the dad and quite the touching moment for the sports community to witness.
Cruz is coming off an All-American senior season in which he boasted a .388 batting average with 45 hits, 11 home runs and 36 RBI out of Biola University in the PacWest.
