The rule of “there’s no crying in baseball” may have to be broken with this one.
A heartwarming video captured a youth league slugger giving his first home run ball to his grandfather.
In the clip, the boy approaches his grandfather, gushing about smacking two homers, one of which was a grand slam.
“I signed a ball for you,” the boy says, “and it says ‘Papa, I love you.”
The grandfather, who began to get emotional, then asked his grandson why he did that. The two then embraced, and grandson responded with a tear-jerking message:
“You taught me everything about baseball,” he said, with tears shedding from his eyes, too.
“That’s so sweet,” the grandfather said in response.
