You never want to hastily throw around the “awful people” tag, but one couple from Wednesday night’s Texas Rangers versus New York Yankees showdown most definitely deserve it.
Here is how the whole thing went down: at the top of the 8th with the Rangers up 7-3, first baseman Mitch Moreland tossed a ball into the stands. As is generally the case, there was a crazy scramble to nab the souvenir. In the end, some random Frank McCourt look-a-like and the lady he was with got it. Fine – that’s all good.

Yup, that’s them laughing at the little kid with tears streaming down his face.
Apparently the kid got another ball for his troubles, eventually, but that certainly doesn’t take away from the horribleness displayed by the awful people sitting beside him. Let’s put aside the fact that they wouldn’t give a crying little boy a random, worthless ball from one of the about 10,000,000 regular season games that baseball will have this year – the fact that they took such glee in what was going on is remarkable.

Worst. People. Ever.
