Wells had an RBI single and a nice running catch in the seventh, but his best play of the night didn't show up in the boxscore. In the bottom of the third inning, the Mets' Daniel Murphy hit a foul ball that appeared to hit a child in the head near third base at Citi Field.
Two batters later after the inning was done, Wells stopped by the stands to make sure the child was OK and to gave the kid his hat. You can bet there's at least one person in New York who doesn't care that Wells is underperforming for his massive contract, just that he was a ballplayer who showed genuine human concern for another human. That shouldn't be so unusual, but it's still nice when it does happen.
Tip of the cap, so to speak, to Marcia C. Smith of the Orange County Register for pointing out Wells' good deed.For more baseball news, rumors and analysis, follow @cbssportsmlb on Twitter or subscribe to the RSS feed.
