Transcript for Man Nabs Foul Ball From Little Girl
Now, there are a few cardinal rules in baseball. Don't talk about a no-hitter when it's in progress. Don't disrespect the umpire and maybe most importantly, if you catch a foul ball, give it to a kid. A man at a game in florida last night broke that rule and now we're hearing from the little girl who got aced out by someone twice her size. Here's abc's nick watt. Reporter: It's an age-old tradition, tossing a ball to a kid between innings. Oh, my! Rewind, we need to see that again, boxed out by a grown man. Look at that pout! And look at the face. Now tonight, it looked like you were gonna get a ball until some rude guy put his hand in front and stole the ball away. Is that what happened? Yes, that's what happened! Reporter: Similar situation at a recent ranger game. Announcer: Oh my god, they can't give it to the kid, that's awful. Reporter: Posing with her prize, while a 3-year-old bawled inconsolably. Announcer: They're really rubbing it in the kid's face! Reporter: They later claimed they never saw the crying kid. There's not a person that knows us that doesn't agree we wouldn't have given the ball to the child. Reporter: Back at the brewers game, little emily martin wasn't giving up. Announcer: Anyone please, just a ball! Reporter: It pays off, she would up with two. Nice going. Thank you very much. I love you! Reporter: You know the phrase, "easy as taking candy from a baby?" I'm coining a new cliche, "mean as grabbing a foul ball from a fourth grader." Nick watt, abc news, los angeles.
