A-Rod Gives Kid Who Lost His Dad to Cancer His HR Bat (Video)


After losing his father to cancer at just eight years old, Boston Red Sox slugger, David Ortiz saw to it that young Mesa, Ariz., native Andy Moss would be treated to a Sox game, complete with meeting the players and even watching the team’s batting practice.

That alone would put a huge smile on any baseball fan’s face, however, Moss wasn’t quite finished yet.

MLB.com’s Chris Landers explains further:

Boston welcomed Andy to batting practice, where he finally met Big Papi. But the story doesn’t end there — Alex Rodriguez happened to say hello before his first at-bat in the second inning, and David had one request.
“I asked if I could have his bat,” he said. “He said, ‘If I hit a home run you can have my bat!'”

This followed that conversation:


Say what you want about A-Rod, but as long as he’s doing things like this; he’s alright with me.

Besides; how else will the Yankees sell those sky-high priced tickets?
