Sunday really was B.J. Upton’s day. The Rays center fielder went nuts with three home runs against the Rangers, and then his lost wallet was returned after a fan contacted him over Twitter.
A man named Brent Sutton happened to find Upton’s wallet and reached out to the center fielder over Twitter to notify him:
@bjupton2 I found your wallet. Hit me back and we can find a way to get it to you.

Upton must have seen the tweet and figured things out because he later summarized what took place:
Wallet fell out of my truck and was found on the street- @brent813 tweeted and returned it- twitter isnt all bad Thanks again Brent #goodday

After the fan generously reached out to him and returned the wallet, Upton wasn’t about to let him go empty-handed. He gave Sutton a bat as a thank you:
After receiving the gift, the fan called Upton a “super nice guy and a monster on the diamond.”
