Lucky little kid gets a Robinson Cano foul ball ... immediately (and adorably) throws it back

The Mariners were already trailing 1-0 when Robinson Cano stepped into the box for his at-bat in the bottom of the first inning on Monday night.

Cano then lined a ball into foul territory down the right-field line where a Mariners ballgirl used proper mechanics to field the ball and observed proper baseball etiquette by immediately giving the souvenir to a kid seated nearby ... who then promptly marked that sucker "return to sender."


All's well that ends well, though, as the ballgirl retrieved the souvenir and gave the kid a second shot at taking it home. Turns out this kid's a quick learner.
