Awww, right? This David-Wells-looking Dad gets a foul ball from a nice gentleman a couple rows back, gives it to his kid and, while Dad's thanking the foul ball donor, the kid throws it away. I wouldn't want a ball from a game in which my team is down so many runs, either!
Here's spliced video courtesty of Fox Sports Detroit:
Tigers announcers Mario Impemba and Rod Allen paid a lot of attention to this situation the rest of the game — that's what happens when you're calling a 10-1 game on the road; you pay a lot of attention to sad fans of the other team.
But don't worry. After presumably being yelled at by Dad and both children looking like they were not having any fun, someone from the A's brought them some baseballs to take home. No word on whether or not they threw those back, too.
