An Oakland Athletics Pitcher Stops To Play Pretend Baseball With A Little Boy

No real damage done to his ERA.

Oakland Athletics pitcher Sean Doolittle was out for a walk with his girlfriend Eireann Dolan and his dog Stella the other day when the trio came across a little boy who noticed Stella's Oakland bandanna.

According to an Instagram post by Dolan that captured the moment, the little boy told them that he loved baseball and asked if they could play a pretend game. The left-handed University of Virginia alum and 2014 All-Star was only too happy to oblige, pitching an invisible ball to the delighted little boy who knocked one out of the park.
