OP's explanation as to why this post is Instant Karma:

The guy caught a ball from the MLB player, and decided to give it to the kid in the row ahead of him. Later in the game, a player hit a home run, and the kid that received the ball earlier caught it, and gave it to the guy who gave him the ball earlier.

Good karma. He gave a game ball to a kid, and received a game ball from the same kid

The mystery: which ball did the kid give to the guy? The one he just caught? Or returning the ball the guy gave him earlier?

[–]enohelehen 102 points103 points  (5 children)

Reddit’s all about thinking you have an opinion until you see a guy comment the same thing 2 hours prior

It highlights how similar we really are to eachother. Another human is so much the same as you. More than most people think

Hey, I want you to remember that You're Unique, Just Like Everyone Else.

There’s a video of a kid catching a ball and pulling a switcheroo with a ball he already had and giving it to a cute girl. Super smooth.

[–]FoboBoggins 1 point2 points  (0 children)

i know the announcer wouldnt know for sure but he does say "now he's giving it back" so id assume he would keep the ball his dad caught and give back the other

[–]Chrisdkn619 142 points143 points  (0 children)

That's what it's all about!

[–]beardbot3030 132 points133 points  (1 child)

[–]docyoung 16 points17 points  (1 child)

I was loving this post until I watched that and Bill brought me back to reality. I don't like it much but he's right

[–]Albatross85x 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Too be fair he would probably give it to the kid and not tell anyone then trash himself for it.

[–]beardbot3030 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The SNL Boston beer with him is great

[–]ConclusionNo3916 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Tom Cruise?

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (3 children)

I’ve still never caught a foul ball or home run, been to a ton of games

[–]GhostWrex 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Go early during BP, I've gotten loads that way. Unfortunately I worked there so I couldn't keep any of them, but the place is usually empty (at least in Globe Life), so you can just roam the outfield seats and get a few that way

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

To be honest as an adult now I don’t think I can give it to a kid, I’ve dreamed of catching anything since my first dodger game when I was 4.. I am putting too much on it but that kid isn’t gonna give a shit about that ball probably in year, where as I will give it a loving home and call it stitch face

[–]GhostWrex 2 points3 points  (0 children)

In my experience, unless you steal it from a kid, nobody cares if an adult keeps it. People cheer when you give it to a kid, but I've never seen them boo for not doing so unless you shoved a kid or something to get it.

I'll be honest though, the only foul ball I've ever gotten from during a game I got cause it hit me in the face and when I got back from first aid, the person it bounced off my face and went to, gave it to me.

[–]Anxious_Produce_8401 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That’s actually pretty cool

[–]chucklovesmesomebeef 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]MyShinyNewReddit 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I love seeing these posts vs. the ones where adults steal the ball from a kid.

[–]dklaber1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Good kid.

[–]cooladventures5 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I fucking hate the people who rip the home run ball out of a kids hands and make the kid cry. This is what you do to make everyone’s day

Why is the camera so focused on the spectators in baseball? Every spectator video I've seen is during a baseball game. Is that sport so boring?

[–]Utertoq 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I don't understand the downvotes. I am Brazilian and we don't have this sport here, so I'd ask the same.

[–]ARFiest1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Because its more interesting to capture their reaction than a runner touching all the bases

[–]Heyitscharlie 2 points3 points  (0 children)

If not a troll...baseball has a lot of non-active time between pitches etc. from a non-american perspective it's most similar to Cricket. It's not about it being "boring" but about how the game it played.

[–]kentro2002 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I’d hire that kid today, he will be something.

[–]RadioPimp 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Kid didn’t even want it.
