Cubs give child a baseball after missing out on foul ball

Cubs give child a baseball after missing out on foul ball

A couple of Cubs fans are getting a lot of slack for breaking one of the unwritten rules of baseball: Never steal a ball from a little kid! The ball slipped right under his seat and some bald-headed man grabbed it as if it was meant for him, completely oblivious to the hopeful young boy right in front of him. The man who grabbed the ball on the widely seen video had actually already helped the little boy get a ball earlier.

Thankfully, the story has a happy ending, with the Cubs later tracking down the little boy and giving him two baseballs, one of which was signed by infielder 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". He legitimately took a foul ball from a child after it landed in the stands.

It remains to be seen if Trump will take questions this week, or if press secretary Sarah Sanders will hold daily briefings. We are hearing no rebuttal or comment from the United States.

'The young man has a game used ball and a Javy Baez ball. "All is well. Guy is A-OK so let it go people", Kaplan said.

This was later confirmed by NBC Chicago's David Kaplan. A man just behind the kid snatched it up, and the kid was left without a ball. But in the photos the Cubs tweeted, the boy had two baseballs.

"Unfortunately, a video that was quickly posted and unverified has made a national villain out of an innocent man who was attending his first Cubs game to celebrate his wedding anniversary".
