Lenny Dykstra
's baseball stud son will now have a famous fan in the stands -- TMZ has learned, a judge just granted Nails' petition to get some time off house arrest ... just to watch his 16-year-old boy play ball.

According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, Lenny is now permitted to leave his CA residence to attend his son's remaining baseball games this season -- but there are rules ... Dykstra must get prior approval before each game he plans to attend.

Dykstra's son Luke -- a high school sophomore -- is a baseball superstar, who batted .383 with 29 runs, 15 RBIs, 10 doubles during his freshman year. He was also named to the MaxPreps.com Freshman All-American team.

TMZ broke the story ... Dykstra -- currently on house arrest following his embezzlement case -- filed the appeal last month.

What drugs are you people on? Baseball superstar? The kids 16 years old and he's batting .383 against other 16-18 year old kids. Crap, I batted close to .350 in high school, and I wasn't even one of the top 5 batters in school.
Just stop giving out superlatives like they were candy.

Sadly, Lenny probably only sees $$ when he looks at his son.

Nice stats for a freshman on varsity, but just to put it in perspective . . . Eric Davis batted around .800 in high school. Luke's still got a journey ahead of him if he wants to star in the MLB.
