The Greeks theorized that there were four kinds of love. 
Storge, or the natural love that exists between family and friends. 
Phileo, or a deep, abiding love between friends.
Eros, or romantic love. 
And agape, unconditional love, regardless of the circumstances. 
So what you see above, John Buck comforting a hooded and injured Matt Harvey, wrapping his arm around his shoulders and drawing him near, is actually a fifth kind of love. The strongest kind of love, the one that can only exist between pitcher and catcher. It is the bond of Syntrofo Batarias, or, Mates of Battery. 
And it brings tears to my eyes.
