Two young Marlins fans get an unexpected souvenir from Christian Yelich

The perfect day for baseball in Jupiter got started at Roger Dean Stadium with a beautiful rendition of the National Anthem from the Lighthouse Suzuki Strings.

Wei-Yin Chen then went on to pitch pitch two perfect innings for the Marlins, before Martin Prado drove in a couple of RBI's to get the scoring started in what was an eventual 7-7 final with the Houston Astros.

But, the highlight of the game for two young fans was when the Marlins' Christian Yelich lost a hold of his bat on a big swing, sending his lumber into the stands. Luckily no one was hurt, and the two young boys have a souvenir they'll cherish forever.
