J.T. Realmuto made the most of his MLB All-Star Game appearance at Coors Field by launching a 430-foot fifth-inning homer out to right-center.

With the blast, he became the first Phillies player to hit an All-Star Game home run since Mike Schmidt did it 40 years ago.

That’s awesome, no doubt, but Realmuto was also making good things happen off the field.

After hitting the homer, he signed his bat and gave it to a 12-year-old Lower Merion kid who was in attendance.

Good looks here.

Have to love the reaction. That’s what it’s all about.
