There are always athletes in professional sports who give back to the communities their team is located in. Most of their charity goes unnoticed by the public simply because celebrities do it for the good, and not trying to only get acknowledged or recognized. They do awesome things simply because its the right thing to do, for the underprivileged, or for those terminally ill. This video has started to go viral within the last few hours. The video description says the fan is fighting a “tough battle” and his family “scrapped money together” to afford his seats. Then they got the attention of Dodgers 3rd base Coach Tim Wallach, asking if Kemp can come meet the fan. Coach Wallach told them he would see what he could do. Matt Kemp not only came over to meet the fan, but also gave him an autographed baseball, his jersey, his hat and the cleats he all wore during the game. And he did all that in the enemy territory, as the game was held in San Francisco, where the Dodgers have over a 50 year rivalry with the Giants. Shout out to Matt Kemp for being a world class athlete and an incredible person.
