Grab the tissues.

Pitcher Trevor Williams was called up to the Pirates this week and capped off his MLB debut on Wednesday with a win against the Cardinals.

Following the game, the 24-year-old approached the crowd to hug his wife and baby. But off to the side, a man was watching and sobbing from a few feet away. It was Williams' dad -– and he couldn't contain his proud emotions as a father.

Moments later, Trevor handed the game ball to his dad and the men embraced.


"Does it get any better than this?" the Pirates asked on Twitter.

No, it doesn't.
