Someone with the account @loupastore27 released a video from that evening on TikTok, showing a little fan pitching his baseball to Trump in the hopes of getting it signed.
As per BusinessInsider, when the ball is caught, the former president asks a neighboring agent for a pen. Trump returns the baseball to the fan after signing it.
When he returned the ball, he hit another youngster in the head, according to the footage.
The boy was not hurt, according to TMZ.
If the young fan decides to sell the signed ball, he may be able to make some money. TMZ Sports said in May 2020 that Trump-signed baseballs sold for $2,000 to $3,000.
Trump has boasted about his baseball prowess in the past.” I was supposed to be a pro baseball player,” he wrote in a passage for a book in 2004, according to Slate. “At the New York Military Academy, I was captain of the baseball team. I worked hard like everyone else, but I had good talent.”
In 2013, the Slate report said, he tweeted that he was “said to be the best ballplayer in N.Y. State.”
