Kemp claimed he didn't know that the camera (which was perfectly in focus) was rolling. If that is true then why was there a Dodgers PR rep standing on the field near Kemp? How did he know about the dying fan? The story is that the third base coach Tim Wallach was talking to the guys Uncle during the game. The Uncle told Wallach who then informed Matt Kemp that the kid was terminal. Again I call Bullshit!
When has anyone at a pro baseball game been able to have a long and informative conversation with an official on the field? Maybe Kemp isn't to blame. Maybe its' the Dogers who turned this gesture into a PR blitz. Or the newscaster who gushed about how great Kemp was and how he "Saved The Kids Life." And
don't get my wrong Kemp did a nice thing. He made someone who is having a hard time in life feel a little bit better. But He did not cure the kids terminal cancer and that's The Bitter Truth
