‘Great Baseball Fan’: Phillies, Braves Reward Phillies Fans For Giving Freddie Freeman Home Run Ball To Braves Fan

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Philadelphia Phillies and Atlanta Braves teamed up to show appreciation for a young Phillies fan. James Scott and his son, Joshua, caught a Freddie Freeman home run ball during Friday night’s Phillies-Braves game.

The father-son duo decided to give the home run ball to a Braves fan who was wearing a Freeman jersey.


The Phillies say they “demonstrated what it means to be a great baseball fan.”

Joshua demonstrated what it means to be a great baseball fan on Friday night.

Tonight, along with @Braves, we were thrilled to present Joshua and his father, @iamjamesscott1, with a baseball signed by @bryceharper3 and @FreddieFreeman5.
