(WBIR) It's America's past time. Taking your old man out out to the old ball game.

The Smokies brought in families from near and far this Father's Day.

"We were on vacation and thought it would be a good day to stop in for a game," said Tom Fenner.

The players even had a chance to wish their fathers a happy one on the jumbo tron.

One father says this game was a great bonding moment for him and his son who has lived across the country for a part of his life.

"It's great to be able to come out with my son. He lived in Vegas for 20 years before he moved here last year. And we moved up from Texas here and we love it. we love the mountains."

Clyde Ingle watched the game with his kids and his father in-law. Thanking a father that came into his life and made an impact.

"This is my father in-law and he has been a big influence in my life for the past 13 years. The way he and my mother in-law are in their marriage, they just set a great example," said Ingle.

The game went on, and the Smokies won in grand fashion. Giving the crowd exactly what they wanted. A Happy Father's Day.
