The Texas Rangers baseball fan who prompted a public outcry when he knocked aside a 4-year-old to get a foul ball now says he will give the ball to the youngster.

Matt Starr also has agreed to send a letter of apology to the family of Nick O'Brien and buy his family tickets to future Rangers games, club official John Blake said Wednesday.

I saaw this on the highlights last night. This friggin idiot nearly knocked the kids head off jumping into the row ahead of him to get this ball. Then the TV crew and annoucers were trying to make a deal with him to give the kid the ball, and he still wouldn't give it to the kid. What a moron!

why in the world would somebody knock a kid away for just a foul ball?

I don't think he meant to really. It was all instinct, get the ball

But he refused to give the ball to the boy afterward, and didn't apologize. I'm glad they showed it last night, let the world know how much of an a$$ this guy is.

I haven't seen it yet. Does anybody have a link to a video of it or something

Stuff like this happens all the time, but this jerk got caught on tv...harming a child just because he wants to catch a baseball?

I'm glad the kid got the ball back (plus during the game he got a baseball bat and some balls from the team), and that man is lucky he didn't injure the boy.
