Justin Turner reacts to video of 2-year-old fan upset over his wrist injury

Los Angeles Dodgers star third baseman Justin Turner on Monday suffered a broken left wrist when he was hit by a pitch during a spring training game against the Oakland Athletics. And it has left a two-year-old Dodgers fan quite disappointed over the injury setback.

The father of the toddler, Andrew Riddle, posted footage to Twitter documenting his son’s reaction to the news.

The best part, however — although it’s difficult to top the overall adorableness of the footage —  is how Turner took the time to respond to the tweet, even offering up a couple of tickets to the as-yet-unknown game in which he will make his return.

There currently is no timetable for Turner to return to action, although Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said “weeks are involved,” per a report from The Los Angeles Times.

Turner, who said X-rays revealed a “small, non-displaced fracture,” understandably was himself upset over the injury.

“It probably felt worse than any other one,” Turner said. “It’s part of the game. It’s unfortunate. I’ll do everything I can to get back as fast as I can.

“… It’s tough. It definitely wasn’t what I wanted to hear.”

And it goes without saying the same can be said for this very young, but very dedicated, little Dodgers fan.
