Man Steals Ball From Small Child, Quickly Gives It Back

This afternoon's game in Cleveland between the Indians and Yankees presented us with a very important teachable moment—one Michael Kay evidently chose to ignore.

This is how an adult conducts himself. We will never begrudge a person trying for a foul ball or any similarly free souvenir at ball game.
