    I'm surprised the weight of that kid didn't buckle his calf when he lifted him up.

    Awesome. Pro athletes (or anyone in the position to be a role model, for that matter) taking the time to do right by kids is great to see. Took Donaldson 3 minutes ... and is likely to positively impact that young fan, and how he ultimately chooses to interact with people who he has some influence over, for the rest of his life.

    Pay it forward. Good on you, Josh Donaldson.
