Brewers shortstop Jean Segura returned to action last night one week after the passing of his nine-month-old son Janniel. Even though he was a visiting player against the Nationals, he received a very warm ovation from the crowd at Nationals Park when he came up to bat in the top of the second inning. Watch below:

You can see a number of Brewers fans were in attendance, but plenty of Nationals fans were cheering too. Well done, everyone.

Segura said after the game that he was touched by the support he received from the fans:

    Nice, Classy Gesture Nat Fans. Sad situation for him at only 24 years old. My condolences to him and anyone who has to deal with losing a child.
