Astro's player dedicates walk off homer to a boy with cancer

Sunday night was a tough loss for the Yankees but for a 16 year old boy with cancer it was a moment he'll never forget. Jalen Garcia has been fighting cancer for several years. Houston Astros star Carlos Correa and his fiance Daniella Rodriguez went to visit him Sunday afternoon at the Anderson Cancer Center to raise his spirits. Daniella has been following Jalen's story because she went to the same high school. Correa hugged Jalen and promised him the next home run he hit would be for him. He said "When you see me pointing I'll be pointing at you." A few hours later that's exactly what he did. If you're a Yankee fan the walk off homer was tough. The silver lining is we are all rooting for kids like Jalen.
