Chicago Cubs deliver signed baseball after fan steals foul ball from child

"The 1st unwritten rule of ⚾️ is that if a player/coach specifically throws a ball to a fan, they get the ⚾️ whether or not they catch it".

First base coach Will Venable approached the stands with the ball and tossed it to a child in the front row. Whether it's a foul ball or a player tossing it, sometimes you'll see adults get just a little bit overzealous shortly before they're vilified by the internet.

The Cubs made up for the kid missing out on the ball by delivering two baseballs signed by Javier Baez.

One person defending the move responding to the tweet, "I like this guy, and he's got a pair of incredible shades on".

The mother of the child who missed out on the ball in the video, also supported the man and released a statement through the Cubs, clearing him of any wrong doing.

At the end of the day, though, the kid went home with two happy hands.

It is unclear how much cash back Tesla has requested, or how many of its suppliers have received this request. A tweet from co-founder Elon Musk has confirmed this.

"In fact, the man gave several balls to children in the same section and his wife as an anniversary present".

After all, who takes a ball from a little kid? "All is well. Guy is A-OK so let it go people".

This was later confirmed by NBC Chicago's David Kaplan.

He turned around to collect the ball but to his horror a selfish supporter played a game of finders keepers with the kid, who looked no older than six or seven.

"The whole world is calling this guy the most evil guy in the world for being a ball thief", he said.
