Blue Jays fans and George Springer go above and beyond for a fan

Blue Jays George Springer and a group of fans went above and beyond for a lady after learning her story regarding her sick husband.

A fan attended the Blue Jays game recently without her husband as he was in the hospital but insisted she go for the both of them. A group of fans nearby heard her story and decided to buy her husband a Springer jersey. After the game, Springer also heard of the lady's story and contacted her to sign the jersey for her husband.

Need to restore your faith in humanity?

In Toronto, a woman attended the Blue Jays home opener alone after her husband, who was in the hospital, insisted that she go "for both of them."

At the game, a group of strangers found out and bought a George Springer jersey for him.

When George Springer found out, he tracked her down and asked if he could sign the jersey.

Kindness wins!

A true act of kindness from both the group of fans and Springer. The Blue Jays lead off hitter is known as a very good baseball player but clearly he is much more than that as he shows with this gesture.

The Blue Jays community all wish this fan a speedy recovery and hope he likes his new signed jersey.
