Watch: Derek Jeter Fends Off Adult Fans to Give Little Girl a Baseball

Saturday April 5th, 2014

No matter where you fall on the Derek Jeter fan spectrum, you have to appreciate what he does here for a young Yankees fan.

During a game with the Houston Astros, Jeter was walking off the field and tried throwing a ball to a young girl. Unfortunately, a rash of adults crammed themselves in front of her, preventing the potential throw. Thankfully, after a few moments, Jeter was able to get the ball in the possession of Yankee fan who understandably was grinning ear to ear.
