Lourdes Gurriel pulled a young Blue Jays fan onto the field in Cleveland to play catch

At one point or another, we all dream of playing on a Major League Baseball field. Such hopes are normally only realized by a select group of talented athletes, but if you're lucky enough, there are workarounds.

Lourdes Gurriel Jr. used one loophole when he saw an eager young Blue Jays fan on the road at Progressive Field before the Blue Jays' game on Saturday against the Indians. It would have been thrilling enough for Gurriel to play catch with the kid in the stands, as we've seen numerous times.

Gurriel, however, took it to the next level. He brought the kid onto the field for the catch:

It wasn't just a catch either, as Gurriel worked with the youngster on his grounder technique, too. Maybe the more appropriate term for this would be a mini-clinic.

Kudos to Gurriel for making this kid's road trip to Cleveland absolutely worth it.
