Time and again, baseball has always proved to be a sport that brings people together. Once again, MLB’s charm has helped a die-hard fan meet his favorite ballplayer with an adorable gesture. There is a saying, “A little kindness goes a long way.” Most recently, the Atlanta Braves played against the Seattle Mariners at their home ground, Truist Park. Although the Braves had the advantage of their home ground and even won the game, it still wasn’t the highlight of the game.
