Young Texas Rangers Fan Cries After Couple Snags Foul Ball
Nobody wants to be that person who makes a young child cry, especially when it’s caught on tape for thousands to see.
One couple faced criticism from fans during the Texas Rangers and New York Yankees game on Wednesday when their celebration of snatching up a foul ball makes a young Rangers fan sitting next to them so upset, he starts to cry.
When a couple caught the foul ball Rangers first baseman Mitch Moreland threw into the stands, the young fan sitting next to them became so distraught that he started to cry.
However, the couple was so oblivious to his cries and continued to celebrate over the souvenir, taking pictures and practically rubbing the ball in the young fans’ face.
Even Yankees broadcaster Michael Kay wasn’t having it, announcing “Oh my God they can’t give it to the kid? They’re actually like rubbing it in the kid’s face. Very cold.”
The story has a happy ending, though, when a someone from the Rangers dugout noticed and gave the boy a ball to put a smile on his face. Check out the video below!
