When it came time to learn the sex of his unborn baby, this college baseball coach found a fitting way to announce the news.

Mike Brown is a camps coordinator and volunteer assistant coach for the Mississippi State Bulldogs baseball team. He and his wife Sarah have a toddler daughter named Riki and are expecting their second child.

Following the suggestion of head coach Andy Cannizaro, the couple held a “gender reveal” during practice earlier this month. The logistics were simple: Mike stepped up to the plate to hit a baseball filled with powder off a batting tee. Before the big moment, the team members picked sides to guess whether or not the powder would be pink to signal a girl or blue for a boy.

Watch the video above to see the reveal and the sweet team celebration.
