Through random acts of kindness, Jeff Francoeur is quickly emerging as one of the most likable players in Major League Baseball. Last month, the Royals outfielder gave $100 to fans in the bleachers in Oakland to buy beer with and ordered them 20 pizzas. Not wanting Kansas City to feel left out, Francoeur gave a similar gift to the home fans on Thursday night during a game against the Yankees.

As you can see from the video above, Francoeur — who the fans refer to as “Frenchy” — tossed a baseball into the stands with a $100 bill wrapped around it and a note that said to buy some beer for the section. We hardly ever see players interacting with the fans in the way that Francoeur does, let alone handing out money so they can buy themselves a beer and showing his appreciation for those who come to support the team. Dude is A-okay in my book.
