Foul Ball Month in Review: July Part II, More Umpires Out and a New Ballpark Delicacy is Invented

Kids reactions to foul balls and toss-ups are always fun to watch. They always congratulate one another, celebrating. Rarely do we see kids get angry and upset. That’s a 180 degree difference from the typical “Adult” response. Check out these awesome kids at the Nationals game from whom we could learn a thing or two about kindness:
