Terminally Ill Baseball Fan Surprised with Autographed Ball, Hat, Jersey and Shoes from Los Angeles Dodgers Star Matt Kemp [VIDEO]

There are so many stories of professional athletes being complete douche bags, so how about a feel good story? Check this out,  outfielder for the Los Angeles Dodgers, Matt Kemp, took a minute after a game to surprise a 19 year old fan who is dying from cancer.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Joshua Jones from Tracy, California, who is suffering from inoperable tumors in his spine and has been given 90 days to live was at the game with his friend Tommy Schultz when Kemp kept a promise to his third base coach to visit Joshua before heading into the clubhouse after the game at  San Francisco’s AT&T Park.

Schultz is shooting the video when Kemp walks up to a stunned Jones and proceeds to sign a ball for him and then gives him his game worn hat, jersey and shoes!

Kemp told the Times that, “I said hi to him, he just looked at me in kind of shock, and it almost got me, it almost got me.”

Ryan, Joshua’s brother was also at the game and he sums up the encounter like this, “I don’t think words can explain how great this was,” Ryan said. “If this is the last memory of his life, it was an incredible one.”
