The story has a happy ending thanks to the Texas Rangers.  But it started off badly.

A video caught a pair of Rangers' fans catching a ball tossed into the stands by Texas' Mitch Moreland and then refusing to give the ball to a small child as he sat crying.

Yankees broadcaster Michael Kay lit up the fans. "Oh, my God, they can't give it to the kid?"

Later, a video showed someone in the Rangers dugout tossing a ball to the child.

Everyone ends up without tears. And the two groups are even shown comparing the balls they got.
