Fans Who Stole Foul Ball from Crying Kid Say They Were ‘Unaware’

Sean Leonard and fiance Shannon Smith Moore, the couple who stole a foul ball from a little boy and made him cry during a game between the Yankees and the Rangers on Wednesday night, recently spoke to ABC and said they were completely oblivious to the drama playing out right beside them. Do you believe them?

According to the couple, they were caught up in the excitement of the moment and were completely “unaware” that the pint-sized baseball fan was also going for the ball.

“As the parents of a soon-to-be combined family of seven children, Shannon and I completely understand how upsetting a situation like that can be for a young child surrounded by the chaos and excitement of a ball game,” Leonard told ABC affiliate WFAA. “Again, we would never intentionally taunt and/or wish to see a young child disappointed in such a way.”

As for the child’s parents, Crystal and Kyle Shores, they think the whole situation has been blown out of proportion. “It all looked worse than it was,” the boy’s mother told ‘Good Morning America.’ ” We don’t think at all that they did it on purpose or that it was intentional or anything like that.”

What do you think? Do you buy the couple’s excuse?
