“I wasn’t expecting it. We are super excited about it,” said David Bramlet.

Neal said he did it so Bramlet could keep a promise to his daughter Addison, that he would one day take her to a World Series game.

“The desire to keep that promise to take your kid to the game, I saw that coming out and I wanted to be able to help him out without him having to sell any of that cool memorabilia that he has.”

Bramlet is grateful for the generosity and hopes others will see this and pay it forward too.

“He’s definitely showing the right way, showing hospitality of paying it forward. It’s pretty amazing,” said Bramlet.

Oh yeah, and a little friendly rivalry never hurt.

“Are you excited? Do you think the Astros are going to win?” asks Neal.

“Yes,” says Addison Bramlet.
