The Baltimore Orioles sit at the bottom of the American League East Division, but one young fan still managed to find bliss in their wretchedness.
All it took was a foul ball that the kid ran down in the upper deck during Wednesday night’s Orioles-Royals game at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. (See the clip below.)
It looks like that ball just made his summer — his year, even.
He kisses the ball. He hugs the ball. Baseball needs more fans like this.
“We all deserve a love this pure in our own lives,” Adrian Garro, who wrote about the moment for MLB.com’s Cut4, tweeted.
The Orioles won the game, 8-1, but the real winner was the boy.
Here’s a longer clip. Cherish that souvenir, lad.
