The man who consoled a young Cincinnati Reds fan at Great American Ball Park after losing his nachos and failing to come up with Eugenio Suárez's sixth-inning home run ball Thursday afternoon was embraced by many Twitter users who watched the video, and one of them - the wife of Reds relief pitcher Lucas Sims - offered him a ball for his valiant though likely painful effort.
From Dani Sims via Twitter (retweeted by the Reds' official account):
An update from Sims - they found him!
From Lucas Sims:
Aaaaand some Tostitos, of course, are on their way for Richie Jones, who has embraced his nickname - and couldn't be a better sport about all of it:
From @Cut4 earlier:
Several media outlets poked fun at the so-called "nacho man" in sharing the video. But with any luck, something better than the Reds' 14-11 loss in 10 innings will come from the man's pursuit of the ball and attempt to make the young fan's day.
Last week, a fan at a Los Angeles Dodgers game was splattered with nacho cheese as he caught Dodgers infielder and former Reds minor-leaguer Justin Turner's home run.
