Starling Marte hangs up fan’s drawing in dugout

Pittsburgh Pirates left fielder Starling Marte is currently on the 15-day DL with a sprained finger. Marte has been one of the key components to the Pirates' success this year, and has become quite a fan favorite in Pittsburgh as a result.

Before Thursday night's game with the Brewers, Marte noticed a fan with a hand-drawn "get well Starling" sign along with a drawing of the 24-year old. He was so touched by the gesture from the fan that he took the drawing and hung it up on the wall in the Pirates dugout. Seriously, take a look at this.

It's right there on the wall next to the lineup card. That's a gesture that warm even the darkest of hearts.
