Boston Red Sox short stop Xander Bogaerts tossed a ball to a young boy in the stands, but an adult standing next to him reached over and grabbed it before he could catch it during last night’s game against the Yankees at Fenway Park in Boston, SportsGrid reports.
As the sports blog notes, if the adult was not with the child to begin with, we can only hope that he gave the ball to the child afterwards. The Internet loves to hate these kinds of moments. “Evil woman” is what the web users called a woman who did the same thing to a little girl at the Houston Astros Minute Maid Park based on a 2011 YouTube video.
More recently, after seeing how happy this little boy was after a man handed him a foul ball that he caught at a San Francisco Giants-Colorado Rockies game in Denver Monday, there’s really no other choice.
