MLB News: Joey Votto Once Again Makes Things Right For a Fan With a Signed Ball

On Saturday, the Cincinnati Reds played the Padres at Petco Park, and a young girl named Abigail showed up to her first-ever MLB game to watch her favorite player who is, in fact, Joey Votto. The sad part came when Votto was ejected from the game during the first inning after getting involved in a heated argument with the umpire about a checked swing call

The young girl’s mother then went to Twitter and it sparked a lot of attention, which led to Joey Votto coming out of the dugout and giving the young girl a signed ball. 

The next day, the Cincinnati Reds brought this young fan and her family back to Petco Park so she could meet her favorite player and the video says it all. She could not contain her excitement.  

This is not the first time that Joey Votto has made up for something with a signed ball. In 2016, Joey Votto was going to catch a foul ball hit by Stephen Piscotty and a fan went to grab it at the same time, which resulted in Votto not catching the ball. After that, Votto grabbed the fan’s “Reds” shirt to remind him who he was rooting for. 

Later that night, he signed a ball apologizing for how he acted and gave it to that fan.

Although Joey Votto gets heated during games, he sure does know how to make it up to his fans and put a smile on their faces. 

Joey Votto is a treasure.

  1. Always has been a good man. Like watching him chatting it up with runners on 1st base.

  2. He has just become one of my favorite players who is not a Dodger along with Freddie Freeman.
