Because we all can't help but love moments like this, here's Josh Hamilton of the Los Angeles Angels surprising a youth baseball team at the Louisville Slugger factory recently.

While ornery baseball fans might groan a bit at Hamilton after his down 2013 season, the kids were obviously excited to see the former AL MVP. He turned around to surprise them as they were making their way into the factory. One second, they were looking at a cardboard cutout of Hamilton, the next he was standing there in the flesh.

He was there while Louisville Slugger gave the team some bats and gear. Hamilton then gave the kids a pep talk and offered pointers while they hit in a batting cage. Think about being a teenage baseball player yourself and consider how cool this is.
