Former Nationals’ ace Max Scherzer is going viral on social media after a kind gesture he made towards a fan at Dodger Stadium, Saturday night.
Scherzer saw a young fan named Cruz holding a sign along the railing. Scherzer came up and not only autographed the kid’s sign, he also signed him a baseball as well.
Cruz was so overwhelmed that Scherzer stopped for him that he broke down in tears.
We’re not crying, you’re crying.

The interaction goes like this:
Max Scherzer: What’s up, guys! What you got? It’s your birthday? YEAHHH!
[Cruz begins crying]
Max Scherzer: Hey! Give me a high five! Yeah, baby!
Cruz: Oh my gosh!
[Scherzer autographs sign]
Dad: Can you sign his ball too?
Cruz then returned back to his seats and re-enacted the interaction to what sounds like his Mom.
“He gave me a high five!” Cruz said before laying down in the bleacher seats crying.
That’s what sports is all about. Good job, Max.
And, uh, we miss you.
