Matt Kemp Invites Joshua Jones to Los Angeles

Remember when Matt Kemp won the most awesome human alive award* by giving his hat, cleats and the literal jersey off his back to terminally ill fan Joshua Jones? Well, Matt decided that wasn't enough and flew Joshua and his family to Los Angeles for Monday night's game against the Angels. Joshua got the VIP treatment, including being on field for batting practice. At this point anything I say about Kemp's character would just be old hat, but he is truly a role model and a man that we should all model our behavior from. True class.

*Award doesn't exist but I just made it up and Matt Kemp won it for lifetime. George Lucas also won one for creating Star Wars.
