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.
