In the fifth inning of Sunday’s Marlins-Cubs game, a Marlins fan and a Cubs fan both came off looking like extraordinary gentlemen when it came to the matter of a foul ball. The Cubs fan dropped the ball, hit by Marcell Ozuna, onto the field. Nate Schierholtz tossed the ball up into the crowd, where it was caught by the Marlins fan. The Marlins fan then immediately tossed the ball to the Cubs fan, who was more than pleased that he ended up getting his ball. But then, things took another turn – the Cubs fan gave the ball to the Marlins fan’s son.
Say it with me: awwwww. Good on these guys for not turning into whiny children over a baseball.
