At the MLB game between the Los Angeles Angels and the Kansas City Royals, there are touching scenes in the stands. What happened? The whole story in the video.
While baseball has a niche existence in Germany, this sport is certainly one of the most popular events on the North and Central American continent. The fans follow the action spellbound not only in front of the television – also and especially in the stadium, a visit to the game can become a real event.
Touching gestures conquer the web
Of course, many fans hope for one thing: to catch a ball that the player previously threw into the stands. Traditionally, you can keep these and take them home with you as an everlasting souvenir. There were two such moments at the Major League Baseball (MLB) game between the Los Angeles Angels and the Kansas City Royals – and a very touching gesture that is now going viral on the internet.
What happened? In the early stages of the game, a fan caught a baseball. But instead of keeping it, he gave it to a little boy sitting a few rows in front of him. The little fan could hardly believe his luck. But that’s not all: A few innings later, another ball flew into the same grandstand. This time it was the boy’s father who snatched the playground equipment – and handed it to his son, who was now in possession of two balls. But instead of keeping both souvenirs for himself, the little fan decided to make a big gesture.
