Over the weekend in the series against the San Francisco Giants, Los Angeles Dodgers center fielder Matt Kemp walked over to a fan on the third baseline and signed a ball for him. The fan's reaction was of both disbelief and shock.

But the generous act from Kemp didn't end there.

He then took off his hat, jersey and eventually his cleats and handed it to the fan, who has been diagnosed with cancer and is going through a tough time according to the description in the video on YouTube.

Matt Kemp is sucha great person. He came over after the game and made one of my best friends night :) he's fighting a tough battle and this was sucha great gift by Matt Kemp ! I'll never forget this.
