Seattle Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager lost control of his bat and it flew into the stands, landing on a young Astros fan named Lyle. Lyle wrote Seager a letter.

Dear Mr. Seager,
My name is Lyle Raymond. Your bat landed on me. I am OK. Thanks for giving me the thumbs up when you were on first base. I like the Astros but will cheer you on too. I gave back your bat because you had a big hitting streak with that bat. I hope you have more hits with that bat.
Your fan, Lyle

Too bad integration didn’t come sooner because there were so many ballplayers that could have made the major leagues. That’s why you look back, and not to take away anything from Babe Ruth or some of those other guys, they didn’t play against the greatest ballplayers in the world.
