(WSCR) Professional athletes get a lot of attention when they screw up, but they hardly get any when they go out of their way to do good.

After a recent game against the Giants in San Francisco, Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp took a few seconds to greet a young, disabled Dodgers fans after a game and make his night. Not only did he sign a ball for the kid, he also gave him his hat, jersey and cleats.

The exchange was posted on YouTube with a description that said: “Matt Kemp is sucha great person. He came over after the game and made one of my best friends night :) he’s fighting a tough battle and this was sucha great gift by Matt Kemp ! I’ll never forget this.”
