A week of sadness followed by a moment of triumph.
11-year-old Alek Kissane lost his father to congestive heart failure this week.
His father, Kris, was the head coach and 3rd base coach for Alek's traveling baseball team, Full-Tilt Baseball.
He was just 48-years-old when he suddenly passed.
In Alek's first game back, in his first at-bat, he paid tribute to his father with a 2 run home run.
Full-Tilt Baseball was playing against the Grove City Titans in Findlay on Saturday.
Alek's home run a deep shot to left field.
And though he couldn't shake his father's hand rounding third base, Alek's teammates met him at home plate.
This giving young Alek a taste of normalcy as he shoots for his dream to play in the major leagues.
