A little boy was captured on video (below) stopping a baseball game to deliver a special message to the coach.
In the video, the boy is seen running to first base — where his father, the first base coach, is waiting for him. His father encourages him to run to second, but before he does the boy stops and turns to his dad.
“Hey! I have to tell you something,” the boy says. “I love you.”
“I love you too,” his father says mid-laugh, before the boy continues on to second base.
The video quickly went viral, garnering more than 500,000 views.
“Kid is smart — he understands the distinction between liking and loving someone,” one viewer commented. “Too often we live with the people we love but absolutely dislike.”
“So adorable,” another wrote.
