At Nationals Park on Sunday, two young fans — one a Rockies fan, the other a Nationals fan — were lucky recipients of souvenirs. The only problem was the Rockies fan got a home run ball hit by Nationals catcher Matt Wieters and the Nationals fan got a home run ball hit by Rockies second baseman D.J. LeMahieu. So they did the logical thing: they swapped baseballs.

Pretty cool moment.

Here’s a link to video of Wieters’ solo home run which tied the game at four apiece. And here’s a link to LeMahieu’s solo shot, which broke the 4-4 tie. The Rockies went on to win 6-5 over the Nats on Sunday.
