Astros bullpen catcher seen in classy gesture following loss to Royals

- Despite a devastating loss to the Kansas City Royals in Game 5 of the ALDS, one Astros player kept it classy in a private moment that was documented on social media.

In the moments following the game, Houston Astros bullpen catcher Javier Bracamonte was seen reaching into his duffle bag and giving kids in the stands items to remember the game by.

Facebook user David Dahmer posted the moment to his social media page saying Bracamonte "threw them his hat, batting gloves, his chest protector, his chin guards, tootsie pops and every baseball he could find which was about 25 balls.. When he was done he threw his bag over his shoulder,"

The next moment is the classiest of all. Bracamonte clapped his hands to the fans that remained in the stands, wishing them luck in the remainder of their season.

"I was sitting there just shocked. After getting heckled all night he showed us what he is all about." Dahmer said. "What a great guy. I'll definitely be rooting for him from now on."

David's original Facebook post can be seen below.
