(Newser) – A couple congratulated each other on snatching a baseball that was tossed into the stands by a Texas Ranger during a Yankees game on Wednesday night—seemingly oblivious to the kid two seats over who burst into tears. As the woman posed for a cell phone photo, the tyke sobbed in frustration, notes the New York Daily News—and the video has, of course, gone viral. Yankees announcer Michael Kay was not impressed as the couple kissed, remarking: "Oh my God, they can't give it to the kid? That's awful. Wow, they’re actually rubbing it in the kid’s face. That’s cold. Look at those greedy people.” The kid eventually scored a ball, when someone in the Rangers dugout tossed up another one. "Look at that grin," said Kay.
