“…The man does not wish to be exposed to the public more than he already has been, Green said. But he issued a statement through the Cubs.
“I would like to thank the Taylor family, Chuck Mycoff, and all the people around us at the game who spoke up on my behalf,” he said. “The story they share is what truly happened. I helped the young man get a ball at the beginning of the game. We were of the same mind that any more that came our way would be passed to the others next to us.
“Many foul balls came our way that day and were happily shared among the children in our area. The ball in question was passed on to one of those children. No one left disappointed. I am not ‘that guy’ that the media and social media made me out to be. Once again thank you to Chuck Mycoff, the Taylor family and everyone around me that came to my defense. You are all heroes to me.”..”
