Roy Campanella once said, “You gotta be a man to play baseball for a living, but you gotta have a lot of little boy in you, too.”
Sometimes that little boy comes out in today’s ballplayers, too.
Example: Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer.
He got an autographed jersey from Ken Griffey Jr., and was clearly thrilled as he showed off his prize on Instagram.
Never miss a local story.
It doesn’t matter your age, there’s always something special about being recognized by your hero.
