As a baseball fan you can go to a lifetime’s worth of games and never get the chance to catch a foul ball. Justin did just that on his ‘first pitch’ appearance in Chicago. But instead of keeping it (and probably making a ton of headlines) he handed it to a fan…..
As if his pop music weren’t gift enough to the world, teen mega-sensation Justin Bieber proved his generosity yet again at Monday’s White Sox game.
Bieber was there throwing out the first pitch, ahead of a taping of The Oprah Winfrey Show in support of his upcoming album. (Watch video of Bieber’s pitch.)
But in the third inning, a Paul Konerko fly ball headed Justin’s way. An 18-year-old fan, Alex Rittel, jumped out of his seat to try to corral the pop-up, but it bounced off Rittel’s hand and into the pop star’s box.
The Sun-Times has the story:
“I jumped up and tried to grab it, but it tipped off my fingers and went into [Bieber’s] suite. I was like, ‘Oh, man, that’s a bummer.’ Then, the next thing I know, he walks up to me and says, ‘Here you go, man.’ “
Rittel asked Bieber — an Internet sensation who recently became the youngest male solo artist to have a No. 1 album on the Billboard chart — if he could sign the ball. After borrowing a pen, the shaggy-haired teen icon obliged.
“I took the ball to school today to show everyone. So many girls were jealous. So many girls.”HUFFINGTON POST
Now how sweet is that?
