Matt Kemp is the face of the Dodgers' franchise, which makes it easy for Giants fans to dislike the All-Star outfielder.
Those fans may not want to watch a feel-good video of Kemp taken this past weekend when his Dodgers were swept by the Giants. Good luck harboring any ill feelings toward Kemp after watching the special treatment he gave a disabled fan at AT&T Park.
"Matt Kemp is such a 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 such a great gift by Matt Kemp ! I'll never forget this," wrote `stayinghigh4209' on his YouTube video.

Still a lot of good in this world. It just doesn’t make the news.
I was on an airplane with Jerel Worthy, #99 from the Packers. He saw a kid in baggage claim still wearing head to toe Packers gear a week after their season ended. He came over and shook this ten year old’s hand, thanked him for supporting the team, autographed his hat, and took pictures. It was pretty awesome.
Must have done it in total shame as the Giants had just swept them. Beat LA!
I’m a Giants’ fan and HATE the Dodgers. That said, pretty classy thing for Kemp to do....
I live in California and I’m neither a Giant’s or Dodger’s fan (Go A’s baby!) but I gotta give Kemp a big thumbs up on this one.
With that said, Zito is another class act for the support he gives our troops.
Of course as a Giants’ fan I still “hate” the Dodgers, but Kemp stands above most with his generosity.
That must have co$t Kemp.....well, nothing.
With all due respect, when I was a kid, Reggie Jackson only needed to nod in the direction of a group of us who were calling out to him, on his way into the ballpark, but he couldn’t be bothered. He kept his sullen gaze down at the sidewalk, for the entire 30 yard walk. What Kemp did may not have cost him a dime, but it had plenty of value. Thank you.
thought it was about a giant gam.
