In September 2014, a 12-year-old boy named Ryan got a foul ball at a Boston Red Sox game. A young girl named Reese sitting behind him was sad that she did not get the ball, so Ryan gave it to her. Red Sox NESN (Boston’s home network) announcer Jerry Remy said, “I think that’s one of the nicest things I’ve seen at the ballpark all year.” Ryan said, “I’ve seen people do it before, and I thought it is a nice thing and it is good to make people happy.” NESN reporter Gary Striewski gave Ryan two baseballs that came from Jerry and NESN play-by-play announcer Don Orsillo. He also gave Ryan a Red Sox goodie bag that contained several items, including a bracelet that he gave to Reese.
