As many Cubs fans learn at a young age, if you obtain a home run ball by the opposing team, you simply have to throw it back.
The throwing back of the opponents’ home runs is a Wrigley Field tradition that dates back many years, and it doesn’t look like it’s dying any time soon. During the Cubs-Dodgers game on Tuesday afternoon, Dodgers catcher Keibert Ruiz hit a home run to right field late in the game.
A toddler appeared to gain possession of the ball (in one way or another), but the kids dad knew what he had to do. The father carried the young kid down the bleachers to allow him the opportunity to throw it back.

While this kid might not remember this video when he grows up, I’m sure the family will have it handy for him for the rest of his life.
There are certain life lessons that you need to learn at a very young age. Throwing an opponents’ home run back onto the field is one of those lessons.
Props to this dad on a job well done.
