Max Scherzer is one of the best pitchers in baseball. He won a Cy Young in 2013, he pitched two no-hitters last season and, most recently, he struck out 20 (!) batters in one game. Fans, in any ballpark, would be lucky to catch a glimpse of the right-hander or maybe get an autograph.
Well, before Wednesday's Mets-Nationals game, an 11-year-old Mets fan got to have a game of catch with him:
Joe La Rocca filmed his son Joe having the dream toss from the left-field seats, admitting later that a moment like this breaks down those bitter rivalry walls:
@Max_Scherzer thank you for having a catch with my son at tonight's game. Lifetime memory. This lifelong mets fan is now a lifetime Max fan!- Joe La Rocca (@joerock101) May 18, 2016
It's OK to be jealous.
