Damn, this is heartbreaking.

that poor kids probably traumatized


He says Jenny Stone told him that "she's very concerned about her son and the impact that this is having on him."

"Hearing the little boy screaming for his daddy and being home with my kids really hit home last night," he said Friday.

Stone's mother, Suzann, told The Associated Press her son had gone to the ballpark in hopes of catching a ball. Suzann Stone said Friday that Shannon Stone and his son had even stopped on the way to Arlington on Thursday to buy Cooper a new glove.


"That's what they were there for was to catch a ball," the 63-year-old mother and grandmother said Friday, choking back sobs. "Cooper loves baseball and he's a big Josh Hamilton fan. Had his jersey."


why is the mom telling basically telling everyone his dad was trying to get him a ball. now the kid could hear about this and think its partially his fault.

This has been a crazy event, this guy lived here in my town, I didn't personally know him but I know quite a bit of people that did know him. His services were today, people lined the streets as he was transported.

I'm sitting behind the wall at the hr derby right now. Hamilton just walked a ball over to a fan. Said he didn't want to throw it.

He wasn't even close to catching it. It was like 20 feet away.

LOL @ the dude on the right snapping a picture.

Also, on top of him being an idiot like many have already mentioned, he is greedy as well. I heard that he and the group he was with had already caught three homeruns. I'm going to assume alcohol had a major hand in this brilliant attempt.
^^^ the guy in the middle is grabbing his ass lol
