Young Cubs Fan Freaks Out When He Gets Tickets, Cubs and Players Are Reaching Out

Chicago Cubs News, Cubs Humor

To catch you up if you haven’t seen the viral video, a 9-year-old Cubs fan named Kolt Kyler was surprised with Cubs tickets from his dad for his hard work, and his overwhelmed reaction was magnificent, as shared by his sister Hannah:


That’s enough to make parents and non-parents alike just melt. (I certainly did.)

Well, Anthony Rizzo caught wind of the fan, and has an invitation for the youngster:

Kris Bryant will be there:

Even David Ross might try to take a break from his busy post-playing-days schedule to meet Kolt:

The Cubs’ Twitter account got in on things, too, and that’s when it got really fun:


When the camera pans over, I turn into a real life ROFL emoji.

Social media gets a lot of deserved grief, but just look at what happened in this story. Not only did Kolt and his family get set on the path to a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but we got to share in the fun and warmth. There’s just a fundamental goodness there.
