Onlooker Photographs Woman's Act Of Kindness At A Baseball Game And The Internet Is Filled With Love

“There’s so much negative stuff going on in the world and this was the opposite of that."

At a baseball game earlier this month, one woman's act of kindness towards a Chicago Cubs fan has not gone unnoticed.

The woman, 26-year-old Casey Spelman, chose to help Yusef Dale, a blind man, hail a cab after leaving the game. According to reports, the street surrounding Wrigley Field was busy, and when Spelman noticed Dale waiting for a ride, she decided to help. Meanwhile, onlooker Ryan Hamilton noticed Spelman's act and caught the kind gesture on camera. 

"Wanted to give a shout-out to this girl. No idea who she is, but we are in Wrigleyville on the rooftop of Old Crow Smokehouse. There was a blind Cubs fan trying to hail a cab for several minutes until the lady came up and asked him if he needed help hailing a cab," Hamilton wrote on Facebook. "She stood there with him until one pulled up. Awesome to see such kindness in a world that the media portrays so much hate in. Share freely in hopes that her kindness spreads."

Perhaps most importantly, Hamilton told FOX 59 that it was apparent Spelman wasn't looking for any recognition in exchange for her actions.

"There's so much negative stuff going on in the world and this was the opposite of that," Hamilton said

"He said give me a hug and I gave him a big hug and he said 'God Bless you and have a great night' and I said thank you, you too," Spelman adds. 

So far, Spelman's act has generated a ton of positivity on Facebook. Since sharing the post, Hamilton's photos have collected more than 10,000 shares and 24,000 likes.

"Sometimes the simplest things," one person commented. 

"Kindness and willingness to help is everywhere," another wrote. 

And it's these stories we should share.
