A fan wanted to play catch with Austin Meadows, so Meadows obliged

Sometimes all we have to do to get what we want is to ask. Whether it's asking the butcher for a cut of meat you don't see on display or asking a friend to prom, just getting the question out can open a whole new world of possibilities.

Wednesday evening, one fan showed up to PNC Park as the Pirates took on the Dodgers with one simple wish: He wanted to play catch with Austin Meadows. Was that really so much to ask? It turns out, it wasn't.

The game of catch was a roaring success as this fan showed off his glove and his arm despite operating in close quarters between the railing and the first row of seats. He didn't even need a sign to get a well-deserved high-five from Meadows.
