Man laughs after snatching baseball from little boy at game

'The same guy helped him get [it],' Chuck Mycoff wrote, adding that the man did not even keep the second ball but gave it to a different child.

Such was the case when Cubs first base coach Will Venable tried to toss the ball to a young fan at Wrigley Field and he bobbled it. The ball slipped right under his seat and some bald-headed man grabbed it as if it was meant for him, completely oblivious to the hopeful young boy right in front of him. Whether it's a foul ball or a player tossing it, sometimes you'll see adults get just a little bit overzealous shortly before they're vilified by the internet. The Cubs tweeted this response: "A Javier Baez signed ball should take care of it".

According to Twitter, the little boy left the game with two baseballs, one from the Cubs and another from the adult fan.

Kaplan says he spoke to the fan sitting next to the man who got the foul ball.

Pep Guardiola: Liverpool spent big after we raised the bar last season
The Blues failed to defend their Premier League title last season, with Pep Guardiola winning the league in historic fashion. If one player plays a lot of games, he can now have a rest - perhaps two games to see if he can recover.

Chicago Cubs' Javier Baez saved the day for one heartbroken youngster after they saw off St Louis Cardinals. "All is well. Guy is A-OK so let it go people", Kaplan said.

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.

The Cubs got involved after the video went out.

"Television and social media read it the wrong way and made up a story".
