    pretty harsh, at least he gave it to his kid and not kept it to himself. But still, not exactly setting the best example for his kid...

    Hmm, well, its abandoned property, the man exercised dominion and control, and gave it to his kid. So, whatever. Is one kid more deserving of the ball than some other kid? Nope.

    Welcome to the Big Leagues, kid, too bad YOUR dad died of cancer, or else YOU`D have a baseball right now.

    COME ON - dad probably didn`t see little kid (3 feet tall, to his left) from where he was standing, and wanted his kid to get a ball. Whats so wrong about that?

    PLUS - Dad DID give the kid the ball once everyone around him booed - he probably didn`t realize what happened and felt bad.

    PLUS - baseball play later came by and gave BOTH kids a ball, so the world is HAPPY!!!!!

    RELAX!

    jamie76 - you might be reading a *bit* too much into this. Short internet videos have a way of making douchebags out of otherwise good intentioned people who make mistakes - MISTAKES THE MAN ACTUALLY CORRECTED BY GIVING THE BALL TO THE KID! This video (not surprisingly) omits that part.

    How`s THAT for "whats wrong with America?" Fessing up to one`s mistakes in the name of whats right? Thats MY America!

    goaliejerry, it can`t be abandoned property. The player didn`t have title to the ball and abandonment requires an intent to relinquish not just possession but title.

    Folks, let`s all take a minute to realize that he gave the ball to his own son. Shortly thereafter, the man gave the ball back to the kid he had apparently stolen it from. Then, David Wright, the player, made arrangements to have the man`s as well as the man a ball for the hard time they had went through.

    Just sayin`.

    Total d*ckhead, and his kids will grow up to be opportunistic d*ckheads too.

    Jerry, the video you linked doesn`t say the dad gave the ball back, it says Wright had to fix the situation by giving the kid another ball after the game. The baseball was clearly intended for that kid, and that d*ckhead had to reach directly in front the kid`s face to steal it.

    It`s doubtful the kid would`ve caught the ball, The boy with the glove was covering his face in fear. I don`t believe this guy even knew the ball was intended for the kid with the glove until afterward.
    He did give it to him later and that had to be hard, Considering he was taking it out of his own kids hands.

    AJ, you`re right: not a dick move. `Dick` implies that it takes some boldness to steal a baseball from a kid. `Bitch move` I think much more aptly describes this guys` actions.

    LOL @ people saying he didn`t see the kid. Lets pray, if that was the case, that this guys doesn`t have a drivers license, cause he`d leave a trail of destruction behind him that Genghis Khan would be proud of.

    "goaliejerry, it can`t be abandoned property. The player didn`t have title to the ball and abandonment requires an intent to relinquish not just possession but title."

    Thats not quite correct. If the player was an agent of the true owner of the ball, the player was implicitly authorized to divest title to the baseball, as happens all the time. If not, the true owner abandoned the ball, as they clearly had intent to relinquish title and not retrieve the ball.

    Several possibilities: (1) Home team owned ball and intended to abandon, allowing player to gain title, (2) MLB owned ball, but abandoned it, allowing player to gain title, or (3) either (1) or (2), but player was agent of his principle, who gained title in employers name, as he was within scope of agency, but was implicitly authorized by industry custom to divest title in favor of another, which he did.

    ABANDONED.

    It doesn`t matter that the baseball player made it so they each got their own ball, the fact is the dad took it from the little boy (there`s no way he didn`t see him when he was reaching right in front of his face) just because they both got balls doesn`t mean it`s all better he`s still a douche.

    I really don`t see how the guy is in poo for this. He gave it to his little kid, he basically said its that fat kid or my kid, and i like my kid better. Ever to go a baseball game and anything thrown out into the crowd has to go to a little kid, even if its an xtra large t-shirt. well screw that, when i have a kid i will do anything to get him stuff, regardless if i piss on another kids day cause i have longer arms and not those fat stubby things

    Goaliejerry, you are making some awfully big assumptions about agency/ the scope of agency/agent authorization.. We could just as easily make assumptions/skew facts and claim a donative transfer or even larceny of the ball by the player. But for the sake of agreement, I can easily see your argument and, assuming certain facts, agree with you -- ABANDONED :-)

    If you read the story (I just want want to play devils advocate) The guy said he didn`t realise the kid was there, and then apologised and gave the ball to the little kid. Then who ever hit the ball gave the guy two signed balls for the "meanie`s" kids, and signed the other kid`s ball. So all is okies!
