Zona player's brother, a senior airman, throws surprise first pitch

You're not going to see a better first pitch than what happened on Friday night in Tucson.

Arizona softball junior Ashleigh Hughes was treated with a surprise prior to the Wildcats game against Oregon when her brother, senior airman Raynard Hughes walked toward the pitcher's circle to throw the surprise first pitch. 

As the Tucson crowd applauded Raynard's entrance, Ashleigh was thrilled to see her brother and greeted him with an enthusiastic hug. According to Pac-12 Network, this was the first time the two had seen each other in two years.

What a great reunion.
