Seattle Mariners’ Kyle Seager swung at a pitch and lost control of his bat during a game against the Houston Astro’s last month. The sluggers bat flew into the crowd and hit a young Houston fan named Lyle.
While the youngster could have throw a fit or ended up in the hospital, he instead took the entire incident in stride. In fact, Lyle even gave the bat back to Seager because he was on a hitting streak.
Faster forward to August, and Seager’s wife has posted an adorable letter the boy sent to Twitter.
It took me a few minutes to read and decipher the letter so here is the full transcription:
“My name is Lyle Raymond. Your bat landed on me. I am OK. Thanks for giving me the thumbs up when you were on first base. I like the Astros but will cheer you on too. I gave back your bat because you had a big hitting streak with that bat. I hope you have more with that bat.
Here is the actual letter sent by the youngster to Kyle Seager:
The letter to Seager could serve as a nice reminder to my “friends” at Wrigley Field that accidentally spilling your beer on the opposing teams fan base is not the way to go. Oh, who am I kidding… stay out of Wrigley if you’re not a Cubs fan.
What do you think of the youngster’s letter and his decision to become a fan of Kyle Seager?
