Professional athletes sign various items for fans, so signing a baby is probably nothing new for the Texas Rangers’ Josh Hamilton.

However, not many signings have resulted in a gem of a picture like this one. 

Hamilton is in the minors on a rehab assignment as he works his way back from shoulder surgery. While there, the 2010 American League Most Valuable Player was asked to sign a fan’s baby. Instead of getting only an autograph, this family also got a picture that will last a lifetime.
