Max Scherzer

Kids are all the same to Max Scherzer, even if they root for the opposing team. So when Scherzer met an 11-year-old fan in a Jacob deGrom shirt at the Mets' Citi Field, he was kind enough to toss a ball to the kid.

But then the kid threw the ball back to Scherzer. The two then engaged in a light catch.

Here's video from the boy's father, Joe La Rocca.

The Nationals won, 7-1, but little La Rocca probably did not mind the Mets' lose as much as usual. The guy who struck out 20 last week is apparently pretty sweet off the field, too.
