Argi A : It was actually reported the man had already given a ball to the little boy previously!! And some other one he caught to some other kid around there!! I hate this quick to judge reports that make the masses judge people instantly without knowing the real stories!

Brian Clarke : Apparently the Cubs made up for this act later in the game by presenting the boy with a ball. It’s shame on only the guy who stole the ball away from the kid but also his wife or girlfriend who should have handed the boy the ball as soon as the man took it and handed it to her. Wow!

Bob Wangor : Yeah it was just a baseball . But that move screams volumes about that guys true character.

qmudd21 : You can tell the child sitting next to the demons felt bad for the little boy. Its sad that the child could see something wrong with the behavior of the so called adults. However, the adults were completely blind to their atrocious behavior.

Jorge Naranjo : That terrible grown man had already cought a ball and given it to that kid, said by the Cubs to David Kaplan, a Chicago radio host

kindle139 : Kid needs to learn how to catch

BizWiz : *Oh you’ve got to be kidding me.* _Some people have no class. Give the ball to the kid. It was intended for him. Then the guy takes it. He’s one of those Cub fans that think the Cubs organization loves him back, but they actually think he’s a douche._

Johnny and Johnny Jr : It was a misunderstanding. He had already given foul balls to all of the kids around him.

Garegh62 : Has anyone identified this douchebag so we can tear him a new one?

flyingmonkey777 : The guy gave the kid a ball earlier, so this one was fair game. There is a picture of the kid later with two baseballs in hand also.

William Scott : God Bless America. Typical entitled gringo

E dfa E : Just think of what else this douchbag is out in the world doing.

Mz. Libra : Jerk!!!!

Brian Clarke : Have you no shame?

broncojonnes : The thought that there are people like this fella patrolling the streets, teaching in schools, running businesses etc is terrifying, but that's mankind for you, you can't have greatness without having the opposite side of the coin, in this case littleness

CallMeMrX : According to Reddit, this guy actually gave this kid a ball previously in the game, and then gave him this one after he took a photo of his wife holding it. You can find a photo of this kid online holding two baseballs.

Derek Bosley : He and his gal pal...bums!

Austin Phillips : While I agree that this was a bonehead move on the part of the guy, I don't think it warrants someone's life being destroyed

Chuck Hickl : Might be a good idea to look into the story just a tad before you pull the race card. More to the story than this short clip shows and yet everyone is so quick to judge. Won't bore you with the details as you can look it up if you care to know the truth.

Tirnipgreen : OK....Here's what you no one is telling any of you about what happened. I know it looks bad, but the kid had already been tossed a ball in the previous inning by another coach. Everyone sitting around him knew it. Yea, it looks bad, but the kid was already treated to a ball...how about giving someone else a chance for a souvenir...??? Things aren't always what they appear. Even the Cubs didn't know the backstory and sent the kid ANOTHER ball...autographed...!!! Again...it looks far worse than it was and everyone around them knew the whole story.

Roberto Leos : The same happened to me a few years ago in Texas. Joakim Soria (Kansas City) threw me up a ball and a grown white man went in front of me and stole that ball. Fortunately Joakim Soria saw what happened and told me to move apart and threw me another ball... Guess what? Another grown white man tried to steal it, also. It's sad see that kind of actions.

Noel Rodriguez : Cabrón!

Zurassh : *UPDATE PLEASE READ* - The guy who took the ball away from the kid later felt guilty and gave it back to him. However, simultaneously Javier Baez gave the kid another baseball but with his signature. YouTube won't allow links in the comments but on someone's twitter page, it shows the kid smiling with two baseballs with his mother in the background. This story of absolutely unwarranted and is completely out of context.

Adom Productions : Dude earlier during the game he caught a foul ball and actually gave it to the kid, he eventually got this one and decided to give it to his wife. This guy is getting way to much unnecessary hate

HiHoRemy : Can't wait until they name him. He'll realize it wasn't worth stealing a childs treasure.

Dee Nurissa A : Apparently he already helped the kid get another ball before this one.

Peter : Relax everyone body. Chill. It wasn't a white kid. Go Trump!!

Spin Dogg : Fuckin colostomy bag.

matthew zimmers : I was just as mad until I read the updated story 😂 now these comments are hilarious. Dude helped a kid get one and gave away 2 during that game. The one here was given to the kid next to the lady and the front row kid already got one. The mom already said they’d give any more incoming ones away.

Law Pickett : Didn't he already give the kid a ball?

planetcheck : People still go to baseball games? Why?

Kenmandu : The jerk acts like Trump would.

Greg Kisinger : FAKE NEWS! This isn't the whole story and it's exactly what happens with other stories when the media sensationalizes a half-truth. The actual story is that the man previously gave a foul ball to that same boy. In fact, the man got three foul balls that day. So, the little boy wasn't left without a baseball (the Cubs gave him an autographed one too). American need to demand the entire, verified truth from the media before jumping to conclusions.

Sterling Pilgrim : Git Gud Kid

colfrankslade : Chicago...what else would anyone expect ?

Michael Ingram : I hope someone in the Chicago area identifies those three pieces of garbage! They look ridiculous taking that ball from that kid.

DaZeD Merlin : Their greed was bigger than their self respect

Aleasha Abbas : We need wholesale changes in MLB and it's Commission for these unmitigated physical assaults, cultural vandalism of artifacts, hurt/damaged psyches of children! Get rid of the Commissioner of Baseball for this and for not spreading the reach of democracy as an international weapon of security! In FIFA recognized events, the Executive Governing body (albeit they are bigger than the United Nations and it's rostrum, with all the mandates to "engage the sport" that turn violent, into wars, or into an international propagation of utter diplomatic hierarchy), they give the ball back to FIFA teams, players, referees, coaches, and or players upon being projected into the stands! Poor Illinois and their Chief Magistrate's Proclamation. I have lost hope in the quality of people from Illinois. This is a civil liberties problem, not civil rights. Although it is rather strangely unintentional, and coincidental that the black family was in the front row and the European Americans are still second class cultural citizens in sports culture. This is not a political problem nor racial. It is cultural and diplomatic because of the Commissioner of Baseball hiding behind the cloak of integration and civil rights. We need wholesale changes and civil liberties are the threshold and security measure! Limit the governing head constitutionally by check pointing his use and mismanagement of civil liberties for discreet children, minors, and youth.

Eli Castillo : The wife's face when the ball is thrown to the kid says it all, and the mans priority is to retrieve the ball for his wife, instead of giving it to the person it was intended for. This was low. regardless if the kid got a ball before, or after. that ball was meant for him, and i think he, and that woman owe that kid an apology. Both, him and his wife showed disappointment when they realized the ball was meant for the kid. and did not hesitate to steal that ball from the kid. You have got to be one inconsiderate person to not give that ball to that kid. People need to realize that sometimes you can be on TV broadcast to everyone at anytime, and there are more dire consequences to mistakes when there are enough people who care about the accountability of your actions. This guy slipped up and let his selfishness overcome his humbleness.

Frank Burdo : Well that settles it, the Chicago Cubs have the worst fans out of all the teams in all of the major sports. First Bartman now this. Can it get any worse? I'm really not sure with these Cubs fans.

Adarsha Shah : Guys don’t get mad he got three balls from that game and gave it all to the kids near him and the kid that he snatched it from got two balls that days one from him and a player so the dude was a nice guy.

Elvis Martinez : Seen to me kind of racist.idk the way he try to ignored them like he dont see them. Ohhh well now he everybody know

jumpthenoob : Hell yeah lets kill this guy for a singular mistake.

shvonce : That's textbook Chicago tho

1sikr6beast : You snooze you lose

Chipotle14 : Does anyone know for sure the kid didn't already get a (or many) baseballs during the game? This should be handled by adults at the game, not with a public witchunt.

hstw31 : This make me really angry. Son of b#%ch

nicks3607 : Proper scumbags.

Maria Ortiz : What a thief that man is. Poor boy, so young learning about evil people.

Hey Joji : Fake news the dude gave it back and in fact the kid got an extra one from the cubs signed
