Scott Downs Plays Catch with Young Nats Fan

It’s not all bad blood between the Atlanta Braves and the Washington Nationals.

Newly acquired Braves lefty Scott Downs made a young Nationals fan’s day by switching gloves with him and playing catch before the game Tuesday night, then won over the crowd with some hijinks trying to retrieve his glove after it fell beneath a bed of flowers beyond the outfield wall.

See? Even the fiercest of rivals can be friends.
