David Ortiz is already a member of the 500 home run club. He’s a member of the proud dad club, too.

To kick off the Red Sox’ home opener, Alex Ortiz, the teenage daughter of the beloved Red Sox slugger, surprised her dad by singing the national anthem at Fenway Park on Monday afternoon.

It was powerful enough to bring tears to the eyes of dear old dad.

And a hug between father and daughter only sweetened the moment.
