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.

It doesn’t matter your age, there’s always something special about being recognized by your hero.
