McCutchen gives his batting gloves to adorable fans

Carl Jung once wrote in "The Meaning of Psychology for Modern Man:"

"The dream is the small hidden door in the deepest and most intimate sanctum of the soul, which opens to that primeval cosmic night..."

If you ever wanted to see what exactly that inner sanctum looks like, all you need to do is watch these two young Pirates fans at the end of the Pirates' 5-2 victory against the Padres on Saturday. After cheering for Andrew McCutchen all game, the All-Star center fielder rewarded them with his batting gloves/magical totems of Major League success, overloading their little minds with a burst of happiness-inducing endorphins in the process.

If a large smile didn't creep across your face as the camera reveals the boy on the left shouting, "I love you!" while pumping his fist, well, sir or madam, it's time to go see a doctor because you have no heart. 

UPDATE: This now gets all the better as the boys' father, Roger McCreary, has first-person video of McCutchen's fist bump. And some pretty great "Raise the Jolly Roger" celebrating, too. 

Game time... And a meeting with Andrew McCutchen
