This last weekend, my in-laws treated my family to a night at our local AAA club ballpark.
Our Oklahoma City Redhawks took on the visiting Albuquerque Isotopes.
I've been to maybe a dozen professional baseball games in my life, 2 of which were in the very ballpark in which we were sittiing, but even I know of some truths that are absolutes at ball games.
He then promptly and without any fanfare, handed the ball to my 6-year old daughter.
Is it me, or only in Oklahoma would a fella give the foul ball he caught to a 6-year old girl who he didn't know from Adam.
I thanked the generous Redhawk fan as we left the stadiium, our team winning that night and completing a 4 game sweep of the Isotopes. He just nodded and flashed a most satisfied smile.
