Marlins receive a helping hand
After Hanley Ramirez, Gaby Sanchez, Logan Morrison and Chris Coghlan, finished up their round of batting practice, hitting coach Eduardo Perez invited a couple of dozen children onto the field to help pick up the balls by the outfield fence.
The children hustled to the outfield, joined by the players. They collected all the baseballs, placing them into buckets.
The children had been watching the round of batting practice from behind the fences, and the invitation onto the field was a special treat.
Once the baseballs were all put away, a number of children asked for autographs from the players. When Ramirez finished signing, he carried a small child from the outfield back to his parents.
