Youth Upstages Adults Again

In what appears to be a common occurrence in the world of manners, once again a youth has upstaged adults in a display of selflessness and honor. In a major league baseball game a young man received a ball meant for another fan and realizing the erroneous bounce of the ball gave the ball to the intended recipient.

During a Milwaukee Brewers at Diamondbacks game, Rickie Weeks threw a ball into the stands to a waiting Brewers fan, but as often happens the ball went astray and a home team Diamondbacks fan got the ball. As he walked away to his friends to celebrate, he was made aware of the mistake and turns around and gives the ball to the younger Brewers fan Weeks intended the ball for.

In the video you can see a stadium employee or other fan in red say something to the young man, but even still some children, and probably many more adults, would ignore the message and keep the ball. The fact that this young man listened to the adult and took it to heart and did this is heart warming, especially considering recent events of fans doing stupid things to get balls. It was also cool that as noticed by the announcers that the D-backs awarded the young man for his actions, hopefully enforcing the good act for him, his friends with him, and other people that will learn about this.
