Man laughs after snatching baseball from little boy at game

Two Cubs fans are getting a lot of slack after taking a ball that was thrown to a kid

The initial video that traveled around social media saw a young boy miss catching a foul ball tossed his way.

Other fans sitting nearby tweeted the guy got a ball for the kid before the televised incident, and also gave two more foul balls away to kids sitting next to his wife.

People on social media were not happy.

The Cubs made up for the kid missing out on the ball by delivering two baseballs signed by Javier Baez.

He tweeted: 'I spoke with people from the Cubs. This guy was great.

A gentleman appeared to help himself to a baseball intended for a young kid at a Chicago Cubs game on Saturday night. However, the kid did not catch the ball, and it rolled under his seat to the row behind him. "TV got this all wrong", Mycoff said.

Although it is nice that the man was so eager to provide his lady friend with a thoughtful gift, he should have picked a better souvenir to give her than one that he essentially stole from a little boy.

CBS News reached out to the Cubs but could not independently confirm Kaplan's account. Well, according to David Kaplan of NBC Sports Chicago, the man who was vilified had given the boy a baseball earlier in the game.

The Cubs got involved after the video went out.

"The whole world is calling this guy the most evil guy in the world for being a ball thief", he said.
