Reds’ Brandon Phillips takes a picture with a baby, it cries


Cincinnati Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips has to be one of the most loved professional athletes on the face of the planet. Not only is he great at what he does, but he looks like he’s one of those guys who would be polite to almost everybody he meets.

That is, until you’re being disrespectful to him. I haven’t seen any reports of that just yet, but I know he’s not that big a fan of the St. Louis Cardinals. You guys remember that fight from 2010?

Phillips is known for his infamous pranks/photo bombing. He recently photo bombed U.S. Women’s Olympic Goalie Molly Schaus during batting practice before a game against the Chicago Cubs.

Now yesterday Phillips posed for a photo with a young baseball fan while the child’s Mother took the picture. Brandon was all smiles in the photo, but the little boy who was in his arms didn’t look too amused about the whole situation.

Phillips later responded with the picture with “LMAO #PRICELESS” that was followed up with a bunch of faces that look like they’ve been crying from laughter. Almost a dozen fans posted pictures of themselves with Brandon Phillips, each one of those fans were retweeted with a special message for each one.

Awesome guy.
