    I thought it was pretty cool. No prompting, no setup for media purposes, just a pro athlete that decided to do something nice for a young fan. It was probably one of the most "real" moments with a pro athlete interacting with a fan that you are ever going to see that wasn't staged.

    Yes, what a great man Josh Beckett is, he'll always be remembered as the first major leaguer to give a ball to a kid. Hopefully players around the country will follow his lead and this trend will catch on.

    Yeah I understand that....It's just that he was crying over a guy giving him a baseball. I know it was his favorite player and all...and a nice moment...but he was bawling. It's sorta funny.

    Ok *******. It was a a nice gesture and the kids reaction was priceless. No need to be your usual d-bag self here. For some reason my posts send your "I must make a d-bag response alarm" off the charts. Without fail there you are.

    Didn't make me laugh? Made me smile though. Only fools would make fun of that kid.
