Last night Billy Crystal led a heartwarming tribute for his ol’ pal Robin Williams at the Emmy Awards. During the eulogy, Crystal shared a story about Williams in the booth during a Mets broadcast. As Robin and Billy yucked it up with Tim McCarver, a foul ball came screaming into the booth, almost striking the broadcast team. Williams, a man who had only attended one baseball game in his entire life, picked up the souvenir.
As it so happens this clip was uploaded to YouTube after Robin Williams’ death. It’s beautiful, it’s everything we love about Robin Williams. Enjoy.
