Some people are real fans... some are not.
I'd like to thank one of the real ones. Watching the Cubs game this evening, we saw a guy catch a foul ball. He then held the ball up while the person he was with took his picture. This is, of course, standard proceedure when catching a foul ball, however what came next was what makes baseball, and the fans that love it truly great. After the picture was shot, he turned around and passed the ball to a young fan a couple rows back. The guy who caught the ball will have a picture and great story to share over a couple beers, but the young fan will have a great souvenier, and (hopefully) a life-time love of The Game.
