At the San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers game Tuesday night, some grey-hooded child knows how to get his way. After not even attempting to reach for the foul ball falling into the row in front of him, the kid used his age as a benefactor to maybe get that game ball from the couple in the row in front of them. Pouting, arms-crossed, shaking uncontrollably and complaining to his father while all unbeknownst that he was spotted by the Comcast Sportsnet Bay Area broadcasters during the game.
You can go ahead and mark this as a victory for all spoiled children in America. Although he was not able to get the fouled game ball from the couple in front of him, the Comcast Sportsnet broadcasters and the Giants hand him his own ball due to him being the star of the telecast that night. But the real winner is the little kid sitting next to "little grey-hooded child." He remains calm and focused on the game, prepared for another chance at foul ball glory, and he gets a ball as well as "little grey-hood."
Nice lesson to teach the kids MLB. A temper-tantrum can earn a reward if put on television. Next game I attend and a foul ball falls near me, the shirt is getting ripped and I'll expect a real wooden game bat from a player of my choice.
