Comedian Chris Rock was at the New York Yankees game on Thursday and left looking like a really good dude after snagging a foul ball that he soon donated to a young fan.

Rock attended the Yankees' 3-0 win over the Houston Astros and when a foul ball came his way, Rock capitalized by grabbing the loose ball when it landed in the stands.

It's safe to say the fans around him were a little upset when the multi-millionaire comedian and actor came away with such a tough souvenir to get, but that budding anger quickly turned to admiration as Rock handed the ball to a young fan.

As you can see from the video below, Rock did not make the catch and instead opted to get the ball the easy way.

Had he kept the ball for himself, things might have gotten real ugly for Rock.

Not only would it look bad for him to keep the ball, but being a New York Mets fan at the same time would only add to the anger from the Yankees Universe.

Fans certainly would have reminded Rock of his less-than desirable honor of having one of the worst first pitches in baseball history that took place at Yankee Stadium alongside Adam Sandler.

Kudos to Rock for making the right move on this one.
