An Army Sergeant woke up to a special surprise from his heroes on Friday.
Sgt. Joey Andreaccio was given a thank you outside his home in Bucks County this morning.
The 29-year old's favorite baseball team, the Philadelphia Phillies, gave a tribute to the veteran for his service to our country.
"To see his face when he first walked out of that door and realized what was happening, that was priceless," said former Phillies pitcher, Tommy Greene.
That surprise included a personal delivery of his Sunday season tickets from none other than Phoebe Phanatic, with a face to face with former Philly Tom Greene who threw a no-hitter in 1991, and video chat with current Phillies star Cole Hamels.
Sergeant Andreaccio has many emotional ties to the team.
"He's probably the biggest Phillies fan in the world. We met at the Phillies game, now it will be four years in June and it's just been a huge part of our relationship," said Sergeant Andreaccio's girlfriend, Corrie Gorman.
The USO and the Phillies have teamed up before to bring cheer to loves of the enlisted, but this was different.
"This is the first time the USO and the Philadelphia Phillies really knocked the socks off a kid," said Liberty USO President, Joe Brooks.
After his second tour of duty, Sergeant Andreaccio is right where any Phillies fan would love to be in his hometown.
Rain arrives for the second half of the work week. Another fall-like blast of cool weather to follow for the weekend.
Scattered showers are possible tonight as a cold front approaches the area. Otherwise, the best chance for rain will be Thursday afternoon and night where we'll see on and off showers and thunderstorms.
Clouds and showers linger though much of Friday. We may still see a passing shower Saturday. Unseasonably cool air returns this weekend where both days only see high temps in the mid 70s with many of us falling into the 50s at night.
