The grandpa's note on an old bucket of baseballs is the saddest thing you'll see in 2020

September 30, 2020

Are you feeling depressed after Tuesday night's debate? Sad for our country? Don't worry, we've got just the thing to cheer you up. 

Just kidding. What you are about to see will only make it all much, much worse. On Monday, a man named Ethan Anderson shared a picture of an old bucket of baseballs. On that bucket of old baseballs was a note written by his grandfather, who used to throw batting practice to his son and grandson at the batting cages he left the bucket and note at. It's one of the saddest things you will see in 2020, which is saying a lot: 

For those who can't open the tweet or can't read the hand writing, here's what the note says: 


Hope someone can use some of these baseballs in the batting cages. I found them cleaning my garage. I pitched them to my son and grandson for countless rounds. My son is now 46 y/o and my grandson is 23 y/o. I am 72 and what I won't give to pitch a couple of buckets to them. They have both moved away. If you are a father cherish these times. You won't believe how quickly they will be gone. 

God bless

P.S. Give them a hug and tell them you love them every chance you get. 

Goodness GRACIOUS grandpa. Why did you have to go so hard like that? I'm 100 percent positive I'm not the only one tearing up right now. Can somebody get in the cage and take some hacks with this poor guy? I'm on my way. 

Fortunately for grandpa, it sounds like Ethan is going to come home and get behind the dish for gramps: 

Thank God.
