Video: Dodgers’ Matt Kemp Is a Nice Person

Matt Kemp is having a tough season at the plate, but that hasn't killed his generous spirit. An SF-based Dodger fan battling a difficult (unnamed) affliction was sitting in the front row this weekend at the Dodgers-Giants game, when his friends told third-base coach Tim Wallach about a special fan sitting nearby. After the game, Matt came over to sign a ball and ended up giving the kid some very special gifts. From the video description:

"Matt Kemp is such a great person. He came over after the game and made one of my best friends night :) he's fighting a tough battle and this was such a great gift by Matt Kemp ! I'll never forget this"
