Phillies fan, daughter trying to soften hearts everywhere with adorable foul ball incident

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
By now you've probably seen it. The extremely precious clip from Tuesday night at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, when one Phillies fan caught a foul fly and promptly presented it to his daughter before she tossed it out of the upper deck.

She then retreats into her father's arms and is rewarded with a hug in a very syrupy sweet moment.

Basically, if this doesn't warm your soul, then you probably pulled for Ivan Drago in the Rocky movies and root for children to find out there's no such thing as the tooth fairy.

Steve Monforto and his family were on the "Today Show" this morning talking about the experience, which many are comparing -- in adorableness terms -- to sleeping puppies, bunny rabbits and turtles eating fruit.
