Adam Dunn buys dinner for rookie Scott Carroll and his entire family

Adam DunnAdam Dunn did a wonderful thing for a teammate who made his Major League debut on Sunday.

29-year-old pitcher Scott Carroll made his first career start following over seven seasons in the minor leagues. The White Sox rookie pitched 7.1 innings allowing two runs (one earned), six hits and two walks while striking out three for his first career victory.

Carroll, who is from Kansas City, had 35 family members at the game to watch him make his debut, and he wanted to celebrate afterwards. He asked teammate Adam Dunn for a recommendation on a place where they could all go, and Dunn did him one better.

White Sox reporter Scott Merkin shared the story over Twitter:

That’s a pretty sweet thing to do by Dunn.

Dunn may be earning $15 million this season and have career earnings approaching $113 million while Carroll is probably just making thousands, but it’s about the thought more than anything else. That was very cool of him to take care of Carroll and the entire family.

And how much is Carroll loving things? Take a look at the “Field of Dreams” inspired tweet he sent on Monday:
