The Throwback Kid: Miami Marlins vs. Tampa Bay Rays
What better way to spend Father’s Day than with your pops at a good ol’ ball game? The shade of Tropicana Field set the stage for the Miami Marlins, Tampa Bay Rays matchup and a super Sunday for dads and their little ones to kick back and clock in some quality time.
But there was one kid in the stands who just may have had enough of his dad.
In the bottom of the eighth inning (Rays up 3-0), Tampa Bay infielder Drew Sutton fouled off a 93-mph pitch off Marlins right-handed pitcher Chris Hatcher. One plump pop got lucky and snagged the foul ball to give to his young son sitting next to him (both donned in Rays gear, by the way). But Young Buck used the opportunity to rifle the ball back onto the field, boasting his throwing skills on national television. Click the photo below to see the rising baller in action.
Looking at the video from MLB, it’s clear as day that Dad felt duped. Put simply, he was hella pissed. But his little one just shrugged his shoulders. What? Like it’s hard to catch a foul ball? Sorry, Daddy.
