Two Cubs fans are getting a lot of slack after taking a ball that was thrown to a kid

A couple of Cubs fans are getting a lot of slack for breaking one of the unwritten rules of baseball: Never steal a ball from a little kid!
Is it possible the social media world, incensed that an adult fan snagged a baseball obviously thrown to a little kid in the Wrigley Field crowd at Sunday's Cubs-Cardinals game, may have gotten it wrong? His grab made the rounds online, eventually gaining the attention of the official Cubs Twitter account.
The team tweeted a photo of the boy with two baseballs, including one signed by All-Star second baseman Javy Baez.
However, a later report suggested that the man gained notoriety based on the case of misunderstanding. The boy tries to catch the ball but it rolls under the seat and a couple of adult Cubs fans keep it for themselves! So, who's the real victor?
Update: Radio host and reporter David Kaplan reported that the man actually helped the boy get a ball earlier in the game. The child, however, missed the ball and it rolled behind him. One video clip doesn't show the entire story - but still, always give a ball to a kid.
The people associated with the Cubs are asking that fans to "let it go" and have piled up loads of outrageous excuses on why that man's behavior should be deemed acceptable. So everyone went home happy, including the Cubs who won 7-2.
