Cubs Get Involved After Adult Fan Takes Baseball Intended for a Child

Two Cubs fans are getting a lot of slack after taking a ball that was thrown to a kid

Two Cubs fans are getting a lot of slack after taking a ball that was thrown to a kid

The Cubs went on to defeat the St Louis Cardinals 7-2.

The video was tweeted on Major League Baseball's Cut4 twitter account with the words, "When going to a baseball game, DON'T be this guy". The Cubs quickly jumped in, and gave the boy a baseball signed by second baseman Javy Baez.

The internet's opinion on the man is probably already set in stone, and it's definitely fair to question him for turning and presenting the ball like it was a rare gem.

That unwritten rule is apparent at every baseball game, which is why there's such outrage whenever a ball is "stolen" from a child.




Photos attached to the Cubs' tweet show the boy holding two balls - the ball signed by Baez, and a foul ball from earlier in the game. However, the ball got away from them and fell behind their seats, where a man retrieved the souvenir and gave up to his wife. "Guy is A-OK so let it go people", Kaplan wrote.

According to Kaplan, the man had already helped the little boy get a ball earlier in the game.

So, THIS happened at yesterday's Chicago Cubs game.

Meanwhile, Jeff, a fan wearing a red shirt in the video, said, "I was sitting next to the boy and the same fan helped him snag a ball a few innings before this". He gave two more away to kids also.
