When Genevieve Haney nabbed a hard hit foul ball at a Phillies game last month, she probably never thought the catch would make her a role model. The praise from the Philadelphia announcers was nice, and well deserved, but a letter from a 5-year-old girl meant a little bit more.
The papa of 5-year-old Genevieve Borchetti showed the little girl Haney’s catch. Little Genevieve then wrote a letter, likely with a bit of help from her parents, to the elder Genevieve expressing her excitement at knowing someone so brave shared her name.
Redditor SaucyMist, a friend of Haney’s, shared the letter and accompanying crayons drawings.
