Rays’ Logan Morrison Brings Kid Onto Field to Play Catch Before Game (Video)
Most young baseball fans would be absolutely thrilled just to have a big league ballplayer throw them a ball. However, one incredibly lucky young fan got to experience something way cooler than that at Globe Life Park on Monday.
Prior to the Memorial day matchup between the Rangers and Rays in Arlington, Rays first baseman Logan Morrison found a kid with a glove sitting along the third base line, lifted him over the railing and onto the field, and proceeded to play catch with him while the PA announcer read the starting lineups.
If that had happened to me when I was 10, I probably would have been too excited to throw, and I would have embarrassed myself horribly. Fortunately, this kid was way cooler than me, so he was able to put on a very competent throwing session.

After the game, Morrison told MLB.com that he actually had a personal connection with his young throwing partner. Turns out the kid, Kell Clendenin, is his aunt’s friend’s son.
Life’s all about who you know, ain’t it?
