One kid got a pretty amazing surprise on Thursday at the Red Sox game.
Not wanting to miss the chance to get an up close picture of his favorite player, the young fan began snapping photos. Then without warning, Beckett handed him a ball. The gift came as such a surprise that Dylan immediately lost all control and burst into tears of joy.
Rather than getting on the kid for being happy, many, such as Jeff Greenwell of Business Insider, recognize the moment as touching and appreciate the kind gesture made by the Red Sox hurler.
Unfortunately the good karma from the deed didn't rub off on Beckett, who ended up taking the loss against the Royals that afternoon.
