LOS ANGELES (AP) - Matt Kemp became an Internet sensation after an impromptu gesture he made toward a cancer-stricken Dodgers fan attending a game at San Francisco's AT&T Park.
The Dodgers' Gold Glove center fielder was informed of the disabled fan's plight during a 4-3 loss to the Giants on Sunday. After the game, Kemp met with the fan and his father, who were sitting in the front row adjacent to the third base dugout.
The fan, whose name is Josh, appeared to be a teenager and was dressed in a hooded Dodgers sweatshirt. Kemp shook hands with him, autographed a ball and handed him his cap.
The video, which can be seen on YouTube, also shows Kemp pulling his jersey over his head and handing it to Josh - along with his shoes - while his friend Tommy was recording the encounter on his cellphone.
