Kemp flies Cancer-Striken Fan to Dodgers game

A few weeks back Dodgers center fielder Matt Kemp gave the jersey off his back to a terminally ill Dodgers fan from San Francisco who came to see his favorite team play at AT&T Park.

Well, Kemp took his generosity up another notch as he flew Joshua Jones and his family out to Los Angeles to catch Monday's 8-7 win over the Angels at Chavez Ravine. Josh got to hang with Kemp on the field prior to the game and Kemp even introduced him to Angels phenom Mike Trout.

Very classy move by Kemp to bring some joy to the young man. Kemp went 0-5 with a Golden Sombrero, but his gesture stands out more than his performance. With the win, the Dodgers snapped the Angels' eight-game winning streak.
