Young Royals fan gets foul ball, throws it back on field (Video)
Kids, they do the darnedest things. This cute little tyke was lucky enough to get a foul ball after his father impressively snagged it while holding a baby. Unfortunately, the young boy thought he was at a Cubs game rather than a Royals game and he tossed it back. Thankfully the ball person gave the ball back to the family after the young boy learned that foul balls are souvenirs and not something that needs to be returned to the field.
UPDATE: The young son’s father emailed LBS to explain what happened.
“My name is James Bryant and I am a Army Officer stationed at Offutt AFB in Omaha, NE. We live in Papillion, NE and that is my 5 year old son, Hunter. This was his very first professional game and the night before he had his birthday party at the Omaha Storm Chasers baseball game where he threw out the first pitch. We received tickets for the Sunday’s KC Royals game so we took our kids and drove down. Hunter will be interviewed today by the local Channel 7 news here in Omaha today after school. Again thanks so much for the posting, he loved it but is still somewhat sad for not keeping the ball but hopefully we can do it again.”
