Signed Montana jersey makes Kemp's day

Signed Montana jersey makes Kemp's day

SAN FRANCISCO -- During Monday night's Dodgers-Giants game, Matt Kemp made eye contact with legendary quarterback Joe Montana, who was sitting in the front row next to the Dodgers' dugout.

While making a throwing motion, Kemp mouthed to Montana: "I want a signed football."

To which Montana mouthed in reply: "I want a signed bat."

To which both smiled.

When Kemp arrived in the clubhouse Tuesday, he was greeted by a Joe Montana San Francisco 49ers jersey, with the inscription: "Enjoy watching you work. The best. Joe Montana."

"I'm so happy I want to cry," Kemp said. "I'm the biggest 49er fan. I had an uncle who took me everywhere and he was a big 49er fan. I'm the biggest Joe Montana fan."

Kemp said he will respond with a signed Dodgers jersey for Montana.
