We saw something like this happen earlier in the season with a young Royals fan in Kansas City. This time the setting was Tampa Bay, where once again the impressionable little guy was only mimicking what he was watching out on the field. Note that at the very end of the video the father had the ball back in his possession, and that this time he chose to hang onto it. Maybe there's a lesson to be learned from all this.
