A Thankful Bryant Follower

If you don’t follow Chicago Cubs minor league 3rd base prospect Kris Bryant on Twitter, maybe you should. Mike Kennedy is a memorabilia collector from Las Vegas Nevada, which is also where Bryant is from. Mike found an autographed game used bat on Ebay for $850. Mike simply sent Kris a message on Twitter to see if the bat was authentic before he dropped $850 on it. After Kris confirmed that it was authentic as far as both the bat and his signature this is the last part of the Twitter conversation that followed that would make any fan smile:

Bryant wasn’t lying. The bat showed up Thursday and Kennedy showed it off in this picture.

In my opinion these things go way to unnoticed in sports today. We as fans and media are so quick to judge an athlete when he/she does something questionable but when an athlete does something like this we never talk about it. Yes, this the first feel good story of this Thanksgiving day. Feel good stories typically do not read or shared or even acknowledged. But I believe that it should be read, shared and applauded.

Bryant hit 44 home runs in 2014, but I think it is safe to say that we can add 1 to his total for hitting this one out of the park!
