Back on July 21, Seattle Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager lost his bat during a swing in a game against the Houston Astros. The bat landed in the stands, where a young Astros fan named Lyle Raymond picked it up and returned it. Lyle recently sent a sweet letter to Seager (as reported by Seager's wife, Julie) explaining why he returned it.
Kyle just got the sweetest letter in the mail from the little boy who got hit by his bat in Houston. pic.twitter.com/iqzShRC8I8— Julie Seager (@JulieSeager15) August 2, 2013
Yahoo! Sports transcribed the letter for those who can't read the small print.
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.
Sounds like Seager just got himself an awesome new young fan.
