Welp, he was trying to do something nice … but former President Donald Trump knocked a kid upside the head with a baseball at the World Series, and the video is pretty funny.
(The boy is okay!!)
#45 was in the house at Truist Park in Atlanta for game 4 of the World Series last Saturday night — sitting in an open-air suite with Melania Trump — a game the Braves won 3-2 over the Astros.
The video shows a young boy desperately attempting to get DT’s attention. Finally, the ex-prez heard the kid, and asked him to throw a baseball for him to sign.
The boy complies … and Trump — who claimed he could’ve gone pro as a baseball player — made a nice catch, snagging the ball, which was underthrown by the kid.
The 75-year-old politician grabbed a marker from a Secret Service agent … and signed the baseball.
Then came time to toss the ball back … and that’s when Trump plunked a kid square in the dome, after an adult male who was with the kid failed to make the routine catch.
Thankfully, the boy appears to be okay … and fans nearby were able to retrieve the baseball.
The silver lining … we previously reported on Trump-signed balls that have sold for around a thousand bucks a pop.
As for Trump, he spoke about his baseball prowess back in 2004.
“I was supposed to be a pro baseball player. At the New York Military Academy, I was captain of the baseball team. I worked hard like everyone else, but I had good talent.”
Official ruling … error on the catch.
