After receiving a ball from Jesse Winker, this young Reds fan paid it forward by gifting a foul ball to another fan

Jesse Winker hit his first career grand slam Thursday night in the Reds' 6-2 win over the Cubs. Winker tends to struggle against lefties, so his fourth homer of the season couldn't have come at a better time for him. And despite his successes at the plate, it was a foul ball he gifted a fan that started a very sweet story.
In the top of the first inning on a 3-2 pitch, Anthony Rizzo fouled a pop fly down the right-field line. Winker was there to make the out, and he didn't skip a beat to give it to a young Reds fan, finishing it off with a high-five:

Later on, in the seventh inning, Javier Báez fouled a hopper down the line. It bounced over the ballboy's head, and near that exact fan's section. His neighboring fan made the catch and gave it to the young kid who still possessed the first ball from Winker. So what did he do? He quickly turned around and gave it to a gentleman behind him:

The man appeared to be shocked, but thankful, shaking his hand in appreciation. He shook his hand and gave him a pat on the head.
There are good people in this world, and this young man is one of them.
