Cubs first base coach Will Venable threw a baseball to the young fan who fumbled the catch; the ball rolling under his seat.

The Cubs tracked down the young fan before he left the stadium and gave him a ball signed by infielder Javier Báez.

Leaving the boy and his mother visibly disappointed after losing out on a chance to get a foul ball intended for them, the man did not seem to care, as he and his significant other beamed with delight while the crestfallen kid looked on.


The Cubs made up for the kid missing out on the ball by delivering two baseballs signed by Javier Baez.

The people associated with the Cubs are asking that fans to "let it go" and have piled up loads of outrageous excuses on why that man's behavior should be deemed acceptable. The child missed the ball and it rolled behind him. But in the photos the Cubs tweeted, the boy had two baseballs.

After all, who takes a ball from a little kid?

Kaplan says he spoke to the fan sitting next to the man who got the foul ball.


Chicago Cubs host David Kaplan later confirmed the reports.

"The whole world is calling this guy the most evil guy in the world for being a ball thief", said Chuck Mycoff.

A bystander close to the situation told the Chicago Tribune, the man in question didn't cheat the child out of the ball and took aim at online warriors for not knowing the full story. "The only reason I got involved at all is because the story was so wrong".
