When the Atlanta Braves lost star outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr. last year to a torn ACL, many believed their season was effectively over, but instead, Atlanta doubled down and made some big moves at the trade deadline, and it won them a World Series.

Fast forward to today, and Acuna is in the midst of his rehab assignment. He's finally getting ready to return form that devastating injury and still showing through his humility and kindness why he's one of the most beloved players in baseball, both on and off the field.

Ronald Acuna Jr. Rehab Assignment

After his rehab assignment game on Tuesday, Acuna was seen signing autographs and taking pictures with fans a full half-hour after the game. For a player that many consider a top-five player in baseball, it's far from something you'd expect, but with Acuna, it's no surprise, especially to Braves fans.

Plenty of stars comes to rehab assignments, do their thing and focus on getting back to the majors as quickly as possible. It's awesome to see one of the baseball's young stars give his time to the fans, especially fans in a minor league park.

With guys like Acuna leading the way for the next generation, the game is in good hands.
