You shouldn't give it to the kid to "avoid the situation," you should give it to the kid because that was clearly who was supposed to get it.

I assume he's just talking about a foul ball, which still, I would give it to a random kid unless my kid was there.

Plus, if you give it to a kid, theres like a greater than 50 percent chance you are getting a free beer out of it (which i got when I caught and gave my kosuke fukodome foul ball to a kid).

Yeah, sorry, I mean more a generic foul ball situation.

If you were one of the people who (reasonably) got very angry at a short video clip appearing to show an adult Cubs fan intercepting a ball meant for a child, you can stand down. The man, it now appears, is a good guy who does not deserve this at all, and indeed gave away every ball he got—including, earlier, one to that very same child.

The ball was clearly meant for the kid, distributing it is not that guy's decision to make.

Its been flooding here and on my way home today I legit would have been hit by a falling tree if I were 5-10 seconds earlier. It was the craziest thing Ive ever seen and maybe the most genuine "HOLY horsefeathers" that ive ever screamed. Anyway, about 10 minutes ago I check my twitter and see one of my college buddies that lives in Chicago wrote to me that he has a Javy bobblehead for me and needs my address and its easily the highlight of my day, I can't tell you how excited I am now.

I was at the game today, got in line about 25 minutes before the gates opened, and they literally handed the last bobblehead out to the person right in front of me. Oh well, I can live without it, but it does suck to be right at the cutoff line.

Im afraid to think about what I would have done in that situation.

What gate did you go in? My friend got there at about 5:10 according to him and was one of the last ~20 or so to get one, and he went in the main gate.

I went in the Gallagher Way gate. In hindsight, that was the wrong choice.

The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.

a league MVP with the worst qualified walk rate would be really funny

it also goes a little unnoticed, but having Baez available to play 20% of your SS innings like he has, instead of needing to roster Mike Freeman/Tyler Saladino types makes the team so much better
