If major leaguers playing catch with young fans in the seats becomes the new trend of the 2013 baseball season, consider this one of the few reasons not to miss warm-ups at the ballpark.

On Monday, video emerged on YouTube featuring Dodgers pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu playing catch with a young fan as hitters took batting practice at Dodger Stadium.


The very next day, another heartwarming fan interaction surfaced. This time, Nationals ace Gio Gonzalez was captured playing catch with a tiny fan at Dodgers Stadium on Monday. The Nationals traveled to Los Angeles for a three-game series against the Dodgers.

Maybe one of these little guys can suit up to take Josh Beckett's spot in LA's rotation.
