Corbin Carroll recently got to experience a moment he’ll never forget, returning to T-Mobile Park in Seattle, a ballpark he grew up going to games at, for the All-Star Game.
One day later, the Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder got the chance to give back to the community he was once a part of, and did a meet and greet for a local little league.
Carroll is an alum of this local little league and took time out of his day to meet the players of the league, signing jerseys and taking pictures with the children, as well as having a baseball conversation with each and every one of them.
On Twitter, the mother of one of the little leaguers took a photo of Carroll signing her son’s jersey and discussed what it meant to her to have Carroll take the time out of his day to do this.
Corbin Carroll quietly did a meet and greet this afternoon for my kid’s little league, which Corbin is an alum of. He took the time for a photo, autograph, and conversation with every kid, and I was just so struck by how kind it was. pic.twitter.com/6o7gE3vOtB

This is a nice gesture by Carroll.
After the All-Star Game, the young outfielder and Rookie of the Year candidate wasn’t done with his business in Seattle, and instead chose to stick around and meet some little leaguers.
There, he made everybody’s day and was kind enough to take pictures, speak with the children, and sign autographs.
And this is certainly something that these little leaguers will never forget.
The chance to meet a Major Leaguer doesn’t come around too often.
However, these children got to experience something truly special when they got to meet the Diamondbacks star outfielder and learn about his experiences in baseball.NEXT: Corbin Carroll's Mother Thanks Mariners For Special Gesture
