MLB.com writer Brian McTaggart brought to light a very special story between Jose Altuve and a 10-year-old boy named Dylan Tindall. Dylan has terminal cancer and met Altuve before Thursday's game. The boy had a special request fro Altuve: hit a home run.

What did Altuve do? He went 4-for-4 with a leadoff home run in Thursday's game against the Mariners.

But the story isn't over.

Dylan was back at Minute Maid Park before Friday's game, this time, he meets with Altuve and shortstop Carlos Correa. Altuve signed the home run ball on Thursday.

Dylan turned his home run request this time to Correa for Friday night. What did Correa do? He ith an opposite field home run to in the first inning.

It is a special moment for a child at his darkness moment. The home runs are great, but it even better to see the Astros players taking time to connect with fans.
