Giants rookie hits first homer, gets ball back with adorable message on it (PHOTO)

Giants rookie Chris Dominguez connected on his first major league hit of his career on Sunday — and it was a towering home run no less.

Getting the prized memento back to stash on his trophy case seemed like a long shot until the little girl who ended up with it returned the ball with with a nice back story and adorable congratulatory note scrawled over the hide.

It seems the little girl had already presented the ball to her sister as a birthday present before they realized it actually meant more to Dominguez. So the girls re-gifted the ball to Dominguez with these words already on it:

"Happy Birthday / Love M" was scrawled on one side of the ball. On the other, somebody had traced the shape of a heart and wrote, "Congratulations Estella."

The rookie was nonplussed about the marked ball.

"That's all right," he said. "It's a good memory."
