This past Sunday Rays center fielder B.J. Upton lost his wallet after it fell out of his truck, which put a sour note on an otherwise excellent day for the Tampa Bay outfielder (Upton hit three home runs against the Rangers in a 6-0 Rays victory). You would have to figure that a lost wallet belonging to a millionaire professional baseball player would be as good as gone once some person stumbled across it—unless, of course, that someone happens to be a Good Samaritan like Rays fan Brent Sutton.
After finding Upton’s missing wallet, Sutton reached out to the Rays star via Twitter. Upton responded back, the pair set up a meeting, and the wallet was returned to its rightful owner. Upton not only gave Sutton a shout out on his Twitter feed, but also presented him with a genuine B.J. Upton baseball bat as a token of his gratitude for Sutton’s honesty.
Here’s the duo’s Twitter exchange…
See kids, honesty is the best policy. Nice to see Twitter being used for good instead of what its normally used for—as an outlet for passive-aggressive grammar Nazis.
