Dobbs visits fan in hospital

Greg DobbsBy C. Trent Rosecrans

I mentioned it earlier, but Monday night there was a scary incident in New York where a young fan was hit by a Greg Dobbs foul ball in the first game of a doubleheader. On Tuesday, Dobbs visited the 12-year-old boy at Elmhurst Hospital in Queens.

"I just wanted to show the kid how bad I feel for him," Dobbs told the Palm Beach Post. "Just for the kid's sake, just to show him my face and let him know I care about him and how he's doing."

According to Dobbs, the fan suffered a broken nose that needed eight stitches and had a fractured sinus over his right eye, but doctors expect a full recovery.

Dobbs said the boy was expected to be released tonight and he was going to call just to make sure he got home OK.

"They were real nice people," Dobbs said. "No animosity."

The same could be said for Dobbs, who has gone out of his way to make sure the kid was OK. Last night Dobbs gave him his bat, while Mets second baseman Justin Turner gave him his jersey.

The Dobber is one of the good guys in MLB.  Fine example.  Thanks for the great years in Philly, and keep it up.

Good for you Greg Dobbs.  A very classy move!  More major league players need to take a page from your book.  I'm glad to hear that the kid is expecting a full recovery - that's awesome news!  For Dobbs to go out of his way should be commended and recommended by MLB and fans all around!  Outstanding job!
