    God bless these teams for giving this young man the greatest feeling he could ever have! It takes good hearted people to do things like this and all the people involved have huge hearts! Way to go Eddie for that home run!

    Every time I start to give up on humanity I read something like this that reminds me they are just a few good people left.

    let me just say this will grant, I’m soooo glad your not on that team!!!
    that small act of kindness they showed Eddie, by having patience with him, allowing him 7 strikes and a “foul” home run was priceless for the few minutes he felt like a true member of that team! I bet everyone on that team felt just as good as Eddie did and walked away with a sense of pride in their fellow team members….too bad your heart is stone cold and you don’t have that warm fuzzy feeling they all did that night!!!
    KUDOS to that whole team and everyone who came to watch!! Great story!!
