Cubs fan appears to take foul ball from child

That unwritten rule is apparent at every baseball game, which is why there's such outrage whenever a ball is "stolen" from a child.

Here's a scenario from this weekend: Cubs first base coach Will Venable tried to give a ball to a child sitting along the first-base line and, when the ball got away from the kid, a middle-aged man in the second row happily grabbed it.

Chuck Mycoff was sitting nearby and explained what that the man caught a ball in a previous inning and handed it to the same boy. The man who grabbed the ball on the widely seen video had actually already helped the little boy get a ball earlier.

He tweeted: 'I spoke with people from the Cubs.


The Cubs official Twitter account posted pictures of the boy smiling with his two balls after the game. But in the photos the Cubs tweeted, the boy had two baseballs. The small boy tries to catch the baseball, but misses it and the ball rolls underneath his seat. After all, he might have a child at home who also wants a baseball. The young man has a game-used ball and a "Javy" Baez ball. "All is well. Guy is A-OK so let it go people", Kaplan said.

The Cubs got involved after the video went out.

A bystander close to the situation told the Chicago Tribune, the man in question didn't cheat the child out of the ball and took aim at online warriors for not knowing the full story.
