    Play of the day! Selfless young fan returns ball to upset boy

    There's hope for America's future yet!



    In one of the most heartwarming scenes you'll ever see, a young Arizona Diamondbacks fan named Ian made Wednesday's play of the day at Chase Field after an even younger fan named Nicholas missed a ball thrown his way by Milwaukee Brewers second baseman Rickie Weeks(notes).

    Though the dropped ball was instead handed to Ian by another person, he immediately recognized what he had to do after seeing Nicholas in a distraught state after botching an attempt at a souvenir. With an amazed audience looking on, Ian marched back down the stairs and graciously handed the baseball over to Nicholas, a Brewers fan, without any prodding from anyone else.

    As Deadspin notes, "if this doesn't warm your heart, you're awful."
    Make sure to watch the video at the link.

    Wow. As I said in another thread, we are in the ME society who's mantra is "what I wanna do when I wanna do it, fuck all else". How this missed Sportscenter I don't know.

    I wasn't at the game but I guess she got booed for a long time afterward. Not enough to shame her into giving the ball back but still. And now she's immortalized on the internets as a heinous cow so there's that.

    Mark Grace arranged to get that little girl a ball and a bunch of other fun stuff so she made out alright in the end. :)

    What makes that video so awful is her giving everyone high-fives afterward. What a beeyotch.
