Here's one from Phoenix I completely missed over the weekend that a friend sent me an email link to. It's going to be timeless. Trust me and watch it.
Gerardo Parra of the Diamondbacks goes to flip an errant ball into the stands to a young fan -- and it's swiped by an older kid (in the white T-shirt) with longer arms. The little guy is bummed and the camera stays focused on him.
Then a strange thing happened. Another kid -- in a Giants cap -- apparently went to the souvenir stand and bought the little guy one of those souvenir balls (they're in the $10-$15 range) to make up for his disappointment!
Yahoo's Big League Stew blog weighed in on the episode.
Here's the video from MLB.com and Comcast Bay Area, with Giants announcers and former big-leaguers Duane Kuiper and Mike Krukow at the mic. Kuiper said it all when he asked, "Is that not the best?"
