Cooper Stone Throws Ceremonial First Pitch To Josh Hamilton

In a perfectly fitting gesture, young Cooper Stone threw out the ceremonial first pitch for the Texas Rangers in Game 1 of their Division Series this afternoon.

As you'll recall, Cooper's father, Shannon Stone, died after falling over a guardrail at a Rangers game in July, with Cooper by his side. Josh Hamilton, Cooper's favorite player, was the Ranger who threw the ball into the stands that Shannon Stone was trying to catch, and Hamilton caught Cooper's pitch today.

Here's the video:
