Boy Gets Foul Ball, Gives It To Little Girl Behind Him At Boston Red Sox Game

People do some crazy things in their attempts to get a foul ball at a baseball game. But at a Red Sox game on Friday, one kid took another approach.

When 12-year-old Ryan was handed a foul ball by one of the team's ball girls, he immediately turned around and gave it to a little girl named Reese sitting in the row behind him.

I think that's one of the nicest things I've seen at the ballpark all year," team broadcaster Jerry Remy said on NESN.

Later in the game, NESN sent a reporter to speak to the boy.

"I've seen people do it before and I thought it's a nice thing," Ryan said. "And it's good to make people happy."

Ryan's generosity didn't end with the foul ball. When he was given a gift bag for being such a good sport, he reached inside, pulled out a bracelet and handed it to Reese.

The Sox may be in last place in the American League East, but Ryan is first when it comes to class.
