Foul-Ball Kid
Baseball, like language, is easiest to learn when young. While gray matter is still squishy and growing is the best time for brains to absorb things like tagging up, the infield fly rule and balking. Same goes for unwritten baseball traditions and codes - like throwing home-run balls from the opposing team back onto the field. It's an act of sticking it to the other team that has carried on for generations at ballparks. Perhaps that's why a tyke at the Royals' April 22 game promptly chucked a foul ball, popped off a Blue Jay's bat, back on the grass. The kid had a hell of an arm, too. He melted fans' hearts and probably learned a valuable lesson: Home runs have to be between the foul lines.
