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

It certainly looked like that Cubs-fans-steals-ball-from-a-kid scenario.

Video shows the Cubs' first base coach, Will Venable, pick up a foul ball and lightly toss it to a boy who was sitting in the first row. The man sitting behind him quickly scavenged the ball and handed it to the woman next to him instead of giving it to the kid.

"He had already helped that kid get a ball", reported one fan in attendance.

CBS News reached out to the Cubs but could not independently confirm Kaplan's account.

UPDATE: David Kaplan of ESPN 1000 in Chicago is reporting that the fan who took the ball away from the child, had actually helped give the child a ball earlier in the game. The young man has a game-used ball and a "Javy" Baez ball.
