Chicago Cubs shortstop Javier Baez is a class act and a fan favorite, and the superstar infielder showcased part of why he is so adored by baseball fans around the world in a video captured by former Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen. Prior to the start of a game, Baez took the time to meet a boy who idolizes Baez, and he made the young man's day.
The young fan was in attendance at the game but was surprised to have the opportunity to chat with his favorite player. The video posted on Guillen's Instagram shows Baez hugging the boy, who was crying tears of joy, and giving him his bat as a special keepsake. The Spanish-language version of MLB's Cut4 tweeted the video out with a caption that appropriately reads, "Not all heroes wear a cape."
