Matthew Borden, 12, and his father Larry, of Lower Merion, got a surprise when Phillies catcher J.T. Realmuto called the two over to hand them a signed baseball bat at Coors Field in Denver.
“I saw J.T. in the dugout and then he comes over and does like ‘one second,'” Matthew told 6ABC’s Jamie Apody.
“(He) goes in the clubhouse, gets a Sharpie and a bat, and signs the bat and gives it to me.”
You think you can’t love @JTRealmuto any more than you already do? Check this out, as he gave his HR bat from last nights @AllStarGame to a young @Phillies fan. I’ll have that story coming up on @6abc pic.twitter.com/cJoiFdvS3z
