“When Michael Young saw Gavin Justice-Farmer’s emotional reaction to the news that Young might be leaving the Texas Rangers, the team’s captain wanted to meet his passionate 3-year-old fan.”

When stories came out about Young requesting to be traded by Texas, Justice said she mentioned it to Gavin and he immediately looked confused. She grabbed her phone and began recording, something she does all of the time.

“He’s very articulate for a 3-year-old and it’s funny to hear what comes out of his mouth,” Justice said. “He’s a huge Rangers fan. It turned into this big, melodramatic 3-year-old reaction. I didn’t know he would be that upset. But his hero might be gone, and there are grown men out there that might drop their hat on the floor and do the same thing. It kind of exploded overnight online and I didn’t expect that.”

It prompted Young, with the help of his wife, Cristina, to organize a meeting with Gavin at the Rangers Ballpark in Arlington’s merchandise store last Wednesday, a few days before Young left for spring training.

Great to see a professional athlete but their ego aside to connect with a child, shows a good side of Michael Young. Have to be a fan of this guy as a person.
