There’s no crying in baseball, but I’m crying watching this sweet video.
The Philadelphia Phillies posted a video on Twitter of two young boys running to claim a fly ball that made its way into the stands. When the first boy picks up the ball, he hands it over to the second boy. When he realizes that we all just witnessed an adorable act of kindness, one announcer says, “That was nice of him.”

Before they go back to their seats, the two boys stop to hug each other. No big deal, but my heart is exploding.
“Oh my god,” one announcer exclaims. “I think we can go home now.”
“Yeah, we’ve seen everything,” the other replies.
I guess Philly really is called the City of Brotherly Love for a reason. I’m going to watch this video on repeat for the rest of the day, and I’ll try not to cry in the process. No promises, though.
