Below is an email that one of our staffers received yesterday. We liked it so much that we had to share it with you.
Hi Jo.I hope this finds you well and I wanted to share this with you. Jason and I went to the Sox game in Anaheim last night & sat behind our dugout.. There was a little boy, about 6 or so, decked out in head to toe Konerko gear, just like his father. Every inning break, he would run down to the dugout and shake his glove, hoping for a ball. The other kids (angels fans) were bigger than him & he kept walking past me to go back to his Dad, disappointed. I turned to the Dad and said “Next time, I’m taking your kid down there myself…”
At the inning break, I looked to my right & there was the kid, waiting for my help. I said, “OK Tommy, lets do this!” I held him up a little and he was shaking his glove, Paulie spotted him and pointed right at him so all the other kids knew to stay away, and he rolled the ball on the dugout right into little Tommy’s glove! We were jumping up and down like crazy, he was so happy and when he got back to his Dad, he just started crying… he finally turned around and said thanks with the biggest smile and tears in his eyes.
Long story short, Paul Konerko made that kid feel so important, he will probably never forget it so I want to say THANKS TO HIM!!!…It was a great night (that would have only been better if we won).
GO WHITE SOX!!
Paulie also made the day for one of our twitter followers (@itsmarthab). You can see some of her tweets here.
