White Sox Fan Alex Estrada Gets His Wish Granted

Sports gives people a chance to step away from reality and enjoy life. Sometimes life throws challenges toward people that do not deserve them. Wednesday night, Chicago White Sox and their fans were introduced to Alex Estrada.

Estrada, 7, is battling Neuroblastoma (originally diagnosed at age 4) at Lurie Children Hospital in Chicago and was about to get his wish granted.

While in between chemo treatments, he was surprised with a day with the Chicago white Sox Wednesday. It began with a pep rally at his daycare before taking a limo ride to Guaranteed Rate Field, according to WGN.

After arriving to the ballpark, he met Yolmer Sanchez and Hector Santiago and began a day filled with fun.

His day included Mario Cart, a pitching lesson, swings in the batting cage, time on the field and even dip in the clubhouse hot tub (WGN reported).

Alex even met with the media and took questions like a pro-ball athlete.

To conclude the night, Alex took a monster swing before running the bases for a home run.

After high-fiving the Cleveland Indians on his way to first, he was met with high-fives from the Chicago White Sox team while rounding third all the way to home plate.

And to make it even better…the Chicago White Sox got the win against the Cleveland Indians 3-2.
