The Best Baseball-Related Video Clip I’ve Ever Seen

Before you watch the video below (I found it on Hardball Talk), let me preface it with a quick note.

If you follow sports at all, you’re probably aware that baseball player Derek Jeter is retiring after this season. He’s a very good player who has been a leader on the Yankees for a long time. But…he’s one dude. There are tons of players retiring after this season (this happens every year), but Jeter has gotten an inordinate amount of attention. Which is kind of Jeter’s thing–he’s a good player, but he has quite a theatrical flair.

Add all of that together and you get this:

My favorite part is that the little girl doesn’t hesitate for a second. She’s begging, begging for the Jeter foul ball, and when she gets it, she instantly whips it back onto the field.

I am her greatest fan.
