During last weekend’s series between the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants at AT&T Field, Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp went above and beyond to make the day of one Dodgers fan seated alongside the field of play following one of the games. After giving the young fan — who apparently is undergoing a battle related to a disability — a signed baseball, Kemp went a step further, giving him a hat. Then his jersey. Then his shoes. Awesome. A description of the amazing moment that transpired between Kemp and the fan in the YouTube description of a video uploaded on Monday and discovered by Vin Scully is My Homeboy and published on Tuesday: Matt Kemp is sucha great person. He came over after the game and made one of my best friends night : ) he’s fighting a tough battle and this was sucha great gift by Matt Kemp ! I’ll never forget this. And the video: What a touching, inspiring and heartwarming scene. Kemp continually demonstrates class, integrity and a genuine respect for his fans and is a shining example of how all MLB players should conduct themselves. Kudos to Kemp.
