Watch a Pirates fan and a Reds fan team up to get their son a foul ball

When you take your kid out to the the ballpark, you want him or her to have a good time. That's why you try to get there early for autographs and load up on delicious cotton candy. But you also want your child to be safe.
During Tuesday's game between the Pirates and Reds at Great American Ball Park, two fans -- a Pirates fan and a Reds fan -- teamed up to keep their son safe from a foul ball and get him that very same foul ball as a souvenir.

These two fans did a great job to keep their kid happy and safe. But, more than that, they taught him a very important lesson -- that fans of division rivals can work together toward a common goal.
