Army father dresses as umpire to surprise son during Safeco Field homecoming The Seattle Mariners and Oakland Athletics held an opening day in Tokyo on March 28, another in Oakland on April 6 and one more — just for old time's sake — in Seattle on Friday. "I'm a little tired of seeing them," Seattle ace Felix Hernandez told reporters. That may be, but it'll be hard to tire of seeing arguably the best highlight from any of the three games. Watch what happens as 13-year-old Kyle Smerer is asked to take part in the "Steal-a-Base" onfield promotion at Safeco Field and is surprised by his father, Steven Smerer, an Army First Sergeant who had just returned from a tour in Afghanistan. _
