Touching moment from the Red Sox-Royals game this past Thursday afternoon, as Boston starter Josh Beckett presented a young Red Sox fan sitting in the front row a baseball, which brought the youngster to tears.
Nice gesture by Beckett, which undoubtedly made the kid’s day—unless he was hoping for a ball from Big Papi or something. Then he’s crying because Josh Beckett totally screwed him over, because we all know no matter how cute a kid is, nobody gets handed a free ball twice in one game.
I keed, I keed…the little guy is overwhelmed with emotion, and it’s quite heartwarming to tell you the truth. Going to the ballpark with the man I am assuming is his Dad, then being handed a baseball by the Red Sox starting pitcher is a lot to handle in one afternoon for such a young kid.
Video follows the jump…
Great kid and a classy move by Beckett. Anyone else find it a little dusty in here?
