Toronto Blue Jays outfielder George Springer gave a young baseball fan a memory he will carry with him for the rest of his life.
Injuries have limited Blue Jays outfielder George Springer to his time on the field this season. Regardless, that hasn’t stopped Toronto’s biggest offseason addition from giving back to the fans.
Moments shared with fans like this with George Springer are what makes sports great
Springer made a fan for life just prior to an at-bat. It was a memory the young fan will carry forever, and he’ll no doubt have an awesome story to share for years to come.
That right there is among one of the coolest things you’ll witness in sports.
It’s an element that was missing for quite some time due to the global pandemic, but thankfully it’s back and gives us an opportunity to appreciate the little moments outside of all the hard work the athletes put on the field like giving back to the fans.
Here’s to hoping more MLB players follow the example set by Springer and take some time to acknowledge the great fans cheering them on at the ballpark so that they may have memories that last a lifetime.
