A foul ball in Baltimore led to peace and harmony across generations

It can be difficult to communicate and bond with people of different generations. With a rapidly-evolving world, life experiences can be so different that it is hard to find much in the way of common ground.

At Thursday's game between the Orioles and A's, two fans showed that baseball has the potential to be that common ground when a fan caught a foul ball and gave it to a younger fan.


It's important that fans of the away team stick together, and these two quickly picked up on that necessity.


Thanks to this fan's generosity, a single foul ball not only made a young fan's dreams come true, but it also built bonds among Orioles fans in Oakland.
