Sports fans can be ... motivated when it comes to grabbing fly balls at games. Sending kids into the scramble to catch anything is never safe, which is why you don't find many little ones mixed up in the rush. But, afterward, kids are always the saddest that they didn't get the ball.
Normally, a lucky fan catches the ball and keeps it, but every now and then, the kind soul offers the prize to an unsuspecting, and incredibly appreciative, young kid.
At a recent Houston Rockets game, Hakeem "The Dream" Olajuwon signed a basketball for fans. Clutch the Bear, the team's mascot, then hurled the ball into the crowd. A man caught it and quickly passed it off to a kid sitting nearby; it was adorable.
