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:

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:
