Twitter erupted in outrage over the man's conduct.
Carpenter's home run streak unfortunately came to an end after Sunday's game, but his homemade salsa was certainly the food to eat on the Chicago road trip.

UPDATE: David Kaplan of ESPN 1000 in Chicago is reporting that the fan who took the ball away from the child, had actually helped give the child a ball earlier in the game.
Kaplan tweeted: "I spoke with people from the Cubs".
The man also reportedly helped other children get baseballs during the game. "As a youth football coaching legend, my view is that it's every man for himself when the ball goes into the stands".
