If we ever encounter a celebrated athlete or famous figure, our first instinct pushes us to take their autograph or click a selfie to immortalize the moment. Sometimes, fans are not lucky enough to experience a good interaction with their favorite celebrity or sportsperson. But this little fellow was lucky to run into Kansas City Royals' prospect Austin Charles, who is an up-and-coming baseball player for the team.

A photographer from Kansas, Sydney Taylor, who goes by @taylormadephotokc on TikTok, shared a wholesome video to prove that indeed there is still some good left in the world and Charles happens to show a lot of love and respect to all his fans. In the video she recorded from afar, Taylor's son can be seen with the minor league baseball player to ask for his autograph. "That is my kiddo in the orange. If you are a baseball player, he loves you and wants your autograph," the overlay text on the video explained as the young boy and Charles continued their long interaction.



 

"You could be in the starting line-up for the KC Royals or you could be the water boy," the text description continued, proving that the little baseball fan loves everyone involved with the sport. Taylor further wrote in the video that her son was in the middle of gathering autographs from several people in the area when he finally met Charles, who was kind enough to give him a lot of attention and had a hearty chat with the little baseball fan. After he signed some merch for the boy, in the most surprising and awesome gesture, the player pulled out a ball of his own and asked the little boy to sign it for him as well.

The boy took a while to finish signing his own name on the baseball as Charles patiently waited for him. "This is Austin Charles, a prospect for Kansas City Royals and he made my son's entire week with this small but significant interaction. Thank you, Austin, we are fans for life," Taylor concluded in the video. The comments section praised the baseball player for acting like a true gentleman and even taking the boy's autograph. @mamatiswholbe wrote, "What an absolute class act! Definitely an Austin Charles fan now. Praying for this young man and his MLB dreams!" @halescarpediem commented, "My parents have been Royals fans for decades now and moved to KC from Florida 3.5 years ago now, just sent them this."

@midwestmom quipped, "This is why I love being near the Storm Chasers stadium. Being able to interact with players, then cheering them on when they make that move to KC." @justinsisemore noted, "That is one classy ball player, but I can guarantee you the ball that he had your son sign will be on his mantle along with many more of his accomplishments. It's a ball of his fans that he'll cherish." @doubleyouwhyoh added, "There's another player that does this. He's got a whole collection of fan-signed items. It's a cool idea to remember how you got there. Looking at that ball during hard times. Do it for the little man!" According to Baseball America, Charles was signed by the Kansas City Royals in 2022 for $429,500.
