This little girl got to meet her baseball hero and it made for an adorable moment.
Penny Boyle is 4 years old and the biggest Houston Astros fan on Earth. Her mother Jennifer recently posted a video to Facebook, of Penny naming José Altuve and George Springer as her “Astros friends." She also said she wanted to celebrate her 5th birthday at Minute Maid Park with her favorite team.
A player who holds a particular place in her heart is Lance McCullers, who she says she’s going to marry. And when he heard that she was a fan, he invited her and her family to the stadium for opening day.
Not only did she get to meet her future husband, and pitcher Brad Peacock, but she got a signed Astros hat, which definitely made for the perfect baseball-centric day.
“Seeing the look on Penny’s face and the way she looked at him like she couldn’t believe what was happening, was definitely the best part for Justin and I as parents.” Jennerfier explained. “The fact that he took the time to meet her, kept his word, and made her feel special really shows what kind of guy he is and what kind of baseball team we have here in Houston.”
