Young Rangers Fan Loses Foul Ball to Adults, Cries; Yankees Announcer Trashes Clueless Couple
There is currently no law that says you have to hand over a foul to a nearby toddler who was also reaching for it and cries as a result … but come on, guys.
At the Rangers-Yankees game Wednesday night, a couple was so stoked to have caught one, they not only didn’t give the thing up, they openly celebrated and preened for the cameras with the ball as the youngster bawled nearby:
This earned them a tongue-lashing from Yankee broadcaster Michael Kay, and landed the three-year-old and his parents on Good Morning America (above).
Luckily for our little buddy, the Rangers are giving him a ball signed by the ENTIRE TEAM. Class move by Texas and not a bad consolation prize for the kid.
Sean Leonard and Shannon Moore, on the other hand, have been castigated by the media – and wants an apology from Kay, who led the charge.
They told a Dallas television station that they had no idea the young boy next to them was crying or even upset over missing out on the baseball.
Leonard and Moore say they were simply caught up in the moment during the game and would’ve given the toddler the ball if they’d seen him.
They want an apology from the Yankees’ play-by-play man for his remarks about them. Think they deserve it? Or should they sell their ball and buy a clue?
