OAKLAND, Calif. --Oakland A's pitcher Sean Doolittle and his girlfriend Erin were walking their dog yesterday when a little boy stopped and asked if they could play some ball.
The boy had no idea who Sean was.
Here's what was posted on Erin's Twitter page: The A's reliever was happy to play, throwing pretend pitches. The boy missed the first throw, but knocked the second one out of the park.
This kid liked the A's bandana. Asked us to play. Had no idea who he was playing with. Sean was charged with the run pic.twitter.com/78qFOcTMa6— Eireann Dolan (@EireannDolan) July 26, 2016
He then ran around some imaginary bases. Afterwards, the boy grabbed Doolittle's phone and took a few pictures with him and his dog.
