There are a lot of traditions involved with going to a Major League Baseball game as a young fan.
Shirt of favorite team? Check
Popcorn, Cracker Jacks, Hot Dog and soda money? Dad’s got it…check.
Glove for catching batted balls that fly into the stands? You’re darn right.
But the one thing you can’t plan on is the way a young face can light up when the latter actually happens. Just see the face of this young man as he realizes what he now holds in his possession while attending the San Francisco Giants – Colorado Rockies game. (H/T – FoxSports.com)
OK, so maybe he didn’t catch the foul ball himself, but still looks like that young fan will dine on this for years.
Now if that doesn’t make you kinda happy feeling, you need to spend more time at the ballpark.
Big thumbs up to the gentleman who actually handed the ball to the youngster, that’s a random act of kindness that the kid is probably still smiling about right now.
