3. The "brat" was only

About 2 years old. He was probably tired and had every reason to be crying. If I had got the ball like the stuck up couple did, I would have gladly given the ball to the kid, crying or not.

9. Even when the parents say-

NO to your kind offer?

The Mother said she did not want him to receive the ball as it would teach him the wrong lesson.

20. I just handed the little boy the ball.

The parents just said thanks, the little boy said thank you. No drama. Pretty much the same both times.

10. What kind of loser adult gets excited over this?

It is an unwritten rule that you hand a ball to a kid if you get it.

The lone exceptions would be HUGE even items (someone's 500th ball, if someone hits a homerun to complete a cycle, etc.)

11. The first thing an adult baseball fan does when they snag a foul ball....

...is look around for the nearest kid. Be a hero to someone.

Unless it was a game winning home run, or a record homer, the ball isn't a souvenir or sports collectible. It's just a baseball. What would a grown-up do with it? Would they put it on the mantle and tell friends: "It was a foul ball and the right fielder tossed it up to me".

17. Nobody "deserved" it. That said, the "lady" was a "brat" for keeping it.


Making your poll a trick question.

22. It's an unwritten rule in baseball that you have to give a home run ball or foul ball

to the little kid sitting next to you, because let's face it, that kid will treasure it for a long, long time, while you'll forget about it after a couple beers. The exception, of course, being if that ball has significance behind it (like a record-breaking home run).
