Calvin Chyko-Leigh was determined to get a ball at Game 1 of the Orioles' American League Division Series against the Detroit Tigers.
The 7-year-old raced back and forth from his seat to the wall between innings, hoping to get one of the baseballs christened by an Orioles player. Though none came to him from a player, he still experienced some Orioles Magic via actor Josh Charles, who was recently killed off the television show "The Good Wife."
Here's how Calvin's mother, Magan Chyko-Leigh, described the events in an email to The Sun this week:
"My son was at that game sitting a few rows behind Josh Charles and his dad. My son, Calvin (7 years old) was dying to get a baseball and spent the time between innings dashing down the steps to the wall in hopes that an outfielder would toss a ball into his waiting glove.
"Well, that happened at some point in the game but the ball didn't go to my son, it went right into the hands of Josh Charles. And what happened next made my son's night, week, month, and quite possibly his whole year. Josh Charles, having witnessed Calvin running back and forth, asked him to hold out his glove and tossed the ball to him! It was incredible. I have a picture of the two of them with HUGE smiles.
"I tweeted Josh Charles later that night to thank him and share how my son was sleeping with the ball because it meant that much to him. He actually tweeted me back to say that my son's hug made his night.
