Phillies Fans Not Booing a Little Girl Now Newsworthy

Honestly? A cute little girl throws back a foul ball that her daddy caught. The Phillies crowd does not boo cute little girl, and it makes the AP newswire.

The dad even hugs his little girl, instead of beating her for throwing away a priceless relic like a Jayson Werth foul ball.

Rob Maaddi of the AP grabs a quote from the Phillies Vice President of Communications, and she says, "This was the true reflection of what Philly fans are like,"

Um, no it isn't. That's the whole point. If this happened in San Francisco, or Atlanta, or really anywhere but Philly or New York, this wouldn't be a story at all. Philadelphia fans are known to be huge dicks (rightfully so) and when they show the same kind of compassion that say, a fully fed komodo dragon would show to a small deer, it is news. Apparently.
