Young Fan Experiences The Merciless Beast That Is Baseball (Video)

| by Jonathan Wolfe

Baseball is a cruel game.

Just think about: one moment, you’re a confident fan whose team is up two runs with one out left in the game. But one swing later, you’re walking home depressed because someone from the wrong team sent a three-run homer over the wall. Such is the nature of the beast.

One young Pirates fan experienced baseball in all of its mercilessness yesterday, and luckily for us, he caught the attention of a camera man.

In just two-and-a-half minutes of footage, this young man runs the full gamut of the emotional spectrum. When the Nationals put men on base with the Pirates up 5-4, he’s concerned. When the Nats tie the game, he’s sad. When the Pirates send the game to extra innings, he’s thrilled. When the Pirates lose the game, he’s crushed.

Watch:

We’ve all been there, buddy. It gets better.
