UPDATE: Would-be Jackass of the week may have done the right thing

Jun 7, 2010, 10:33 AM EDT

UPDATE: I’m told that the guy handed the ball back to the kid for
whom it was intended. Can anyone confirm?  If so, I must revoke
the “jackass of the week” award and find a more appropriate recipient. Nominations can be made in the comments. Please, nothing related to the Galarraga thing. That’s been beaten to death by now.

10:02 A.M.: The video quality is terrible, but watch this guy at yesterday’s Mets game reach over to steal a ball that David Wright is obviously trying to toss to a kid. And no, it doesn’t make it any better that he gave the ball to his own kid.

I have my issues with the New York tabloids, but if they’re good at one thing they’re good at turning things like these into good old-fashioned public shamings.  So get it to it Post and Daily News: I want hi-res pictures and butt-covering quotes from this guy in tomorrow morning’s editions.  I know you can do it!

    The non douche bag is a really great guy, a loyal friend, a phenomenal dad, loving husband, and just a plain nice guy. Anyone that calls him a friend is a truly lucky person.
