At a time when the world feels firmly and permanently divided, two young boys showed us all what true compassion and generosity looks like after they both went for the same foul ball at a recent MLB baseball game.


The heartwarming interaction happened during a matchup between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Philadelphia Phillies after a Dodgers player hit a foul ball into the stands.

The two young Phillies fans both raced up the steps to grab the ball at about the same time. The boy that got there first turned around with the ball in his hand and simply offered it to the boy who got there right behind him.

As the two headed back to their seats, the boy who wound up with the ball gave the other boy a hug to thank him and they went their merry ways.

Luckily for all of us, the sweet moment was caught by TV cameras.

The video quickly went viral, with people praising the two boys for their kindness and maturity.






Someone clearly raised these two kids right.



We've certainly seen adults act much worse in similar circumstances.





Once officials became aware of what transpired, both boys ended up going home with game balls.

Which just goes to show:

if you do good things, good things often come your way.

And as the baseball commentator so aptly said:

"It doesn't matter how late or what day it is–it's always nice to be nice to the nice."

The rule of thumb when eating fast food is very simple: put on the blinders, enjoy the meal, and try not to do it too often.

But what if you work in the kitchen?

In that case, there's simply no escaping a complete understanding of the several horrors that each assembled burger or french fry encounters on its way to that front counter.
