Little baseball player stops running bases to say ‘I love you’

Little tyke sports is the best. Partly because little kids wearing helmets that are bigger than their bodies is amazing. But also because it’s fun to watch them push to be a future student athlete and/or pro.

Most of all, when the players are this young, all of their on-the-field blunders are pretty adorable. Case in point: This pint-sized baseball player who stopped running the bases to tell his dad–who was the first base coach–that he loves him.

Unlike in the bigs, this kid caught a break and was still allowed to continue his trot to second base without becoming the victim of a 6-4-3 double play.

Perhaps his dad will think twice about video recording his kid’s at-bat while standing at first base.
