A boy catches a foul ball during a baseball game. What he does next is heartwarming
The internet, with all its drawbacks, is still a great place. Every now and then he shows us a heartwarming clip, and it restores our faith in the goodness of humans. In a video that surfaced this week, we can see the kindness shown by a young boy, and it will touch your heart. The clip is from a baseball game between the Philadelphia Phillies and the Chicago Cubs in Philadelphia on Wednesday night (September 15). The incident occurred when the balloon flew into the stands. As a little girl and a boy ran towards to retrieve the ball, the boy managed to catch it first.
The 10-year-old boy, visibly delighted, raised his hand and pointed the ball to the camera. However, the young girl was heartbroken for not having been there first. Devastated, she started to cry. The boy then quickly – and selflessly – gave her the ball, which stopped her tears.
CBS News identified the boy as Aaron Pressley, 10, and the girl as Emma Brady, 7.

I truly believe that we are all born with goodness in our hearts. Unfortunately, something happens in our lifetime that changes some people (minority of course). I hope this next generation can keep the love in their hearts as this young man has shown. It is a proud moment for parents.

One user praised the boy’s parents for teaching him the right thing – “Thank you to this child’s parents for teaching him the important things in life.”

Few users have pointed out that the little girl would take the wrong point to remember from this episode.
1-He’s a brilliant young man … great job dad ????????
2- not comfortable that the little girl learns … if you cry you get what you want ????
Life is hard and will get harder …
Double-edged sword …

What a caring boy. Unfortunately, I’m afraid he’ll teach the little girl that crying when she doesn’t get what she wants is a good strategy for getting things done in life.

If I were the father of this girl, this kid, I would pick any swimsuit or item he wants from the gift shop. Great on the well behaved kid!

“I felt like it didn’t feel right to have the ball and to know that someone was crying, so I had to give it to them,” Aaron said.
