Not only will he attend the game on June 3 when his favorite team hosts the St. Louis Cardinals, but he will get some extra special treatment thanks to pitcher Jon Lester and first baseman Anthony Rizzo. Check out what Lester tweeted after seeing the heartwarming clip.
And Rizzo is offering Kyler batting practice passes.
