Young fan at Fenway gladly gives up ball to even younger fan

People at ballparks often fight over foul balls, but not very often do they kindly hand them to a complete stranger. But that's exactly what happened Friday night at Fenway Park. In the bottom of the fourth inning of the Boston Red Sox's game against the Toronto Blue Jays, catcher Christian Vazquez knocked a ball foul, and the ball girl handed it to a young boy. However, that boy immediately turned around and gave it to the younger girl behind him.
Young fan shows he is a gentleman.

NESN announcers Don Orsillo and Jerry Remy were so astounded by the boy's generosity that they sent sideline reporter Gary Striewski to the stands to give him two baseballs and get an interview. If this doesn't restore your faith in humanity, we don't know what will. There is no better feeling for a young child than nabbing a baseball at a major league park. However, this young boy in Boston passed it up and paid it forward in a big way. It was such a surprising gesture that the girl's mother couldn't hide her shock and amazement at the selfless act. Slick move, kid, you've got a bright future.
