The Mystery Man at Miller Park

10 Comments

This thing has gone viral in the past several hours, but if you haven’t seen it it’s worth checking out.

It’s basically a missed connection from a Brewers game. A mother posts a thank you to the anonymous man at Miller Park who was wonderful to her son, getting him a baseball and basically being awesome:

As we shuffled out of the stadium, Isaiah wouldn’t stop talking about his very own Brewers baseball and how it was one of his “special treasures.”  It can be so easy to forget sometimes how small acts of kindness can have such a huge impact on our fellow humans.  Holding open a door, offering a seat on a bus or subway, paying for a stranger’s coffee.  All teeny little choices that can become a bright spot in an otherwise difficult day.

But you did more than that, sir.  You made my boy feel like a rockstar.  You didn’t have to.  You chose to.  And I am sincerely grateful to you for it.  When my wiped-out children were tucked into bed last night, I took a few minutes to thank God for you.  I asked that He bless you and draw near to you wherever you were.  I prayed that the Lord would encourage you and honor your kindness by bringing joy to your heart.

But I would still love to find out your name so I can send you a proper thank you note.  🙂

Sincerely,
The Grateful Mother in Row 18

Check out her blog for the resolution. And for some suggestion about how internet commenters are the worst (but not you guys — no, you’re the best).

Coming to morning television near you pretty soon, I assume. Which I’m totally cool with because it’s nice to see people act decently to one another.

Reliever Mark Lowe wants to make a comeback, Jerry Crasnick reports. The 35-year-old veteran is working out in Portland, Oregon and would take an opportunity to pitch overseas as well as a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Lowe signed a minor league deal with the Dodgers back in January, but was cut in the middle of March and didn’t end up signing with another team. He last pitched in the majors in 2016 with the Tigers. Across parts of 11 seasons, Lowe has a career 4.22 ERA with 352 strikeouts and 163 walks in 385 2/3 innings. Lowe spent 2017 at Triple-A for the Mariners and White Sox, compiling a devilish 6.66 ERA in aggregate across 48 2/3 innings.
