This clip is about to warm your heart.
During Thursday’s Athletics vs. Kansas City Royals game at Kauffman Stadium, a young A’s fan appeared to be pretty disappointed he couldn’t come up with a foul ball. But that’s OK, because he was about to be taken care of.
A fellow A’s fan in attendance found him and handed the young fan a ball. No explanation, just out of the goodness of his heart.
“That right there, that’s what it’s all about,” NBC Sports California’s Dallas Braden said during the broadcast. “You know what that tells me, is that that young man has been to a ballgame or two in his day and he’s probably had that same thing happen to him, and that’s what you call paying it forward."
Yes, this is the cutest moment you will see today.
The A’s were putting on a show for the young fans as well.
Starter Paul Blackburn struck out three in five innings, giving up just two earned runs. Josh Harrison also remained hot and through seven innings and was 3-for-4.
