(Arlington, Texas-AP) June 17, 2004 - The Texas Rangers say a man who slammed into a 4-year-old boy while diving for a foul ball has agreed to give the baseball to the child.

The Rangers also say Matt Starr will send a letter of apology to little Nick O'Brien and his family over Sunday's incident.

Starr, 28 and a former youth minister, was sitting behind Nick and was shown on TV diving for the ball and knocking the boy against the seats.

At the time nearby fans chanted for him to give the ball to the boy, but Starr refused. Players from the Rangers and visiting St. Louis Cardinals then gave balls and bats to the child.

A Rangers spokesman says Starr also will provide the O'Brien family with an unspecified number of tickets to future Texas games.
