WATCH: Nationals' Anthony Rendon reunites with former Little League coach, HISD officer

Meet the Houston Independent School District police officer who once coached Anthony Rendon in little league.

HOUSTON – Washington Nationals third baseman Anthony Rendon shared a heartwarming reunion with his former Little League coach before facing off against the Astros in Game 1 of the World Series Tuesday night.

The Nats star might play for a Washington D.C. team, but he has Houston roots.

A video captured Rendon’s reunion with his old Little League Coach, Houston ISD police officer Ronald Bremberry. 



Bremberry said he was working security at Minute Maid Park and he asked one of Rendon's teammates to tell his fomer little league star he was there.

"He walks out, 'Coach Ryan, how you doing?'" Bremberry said, recalling their reunion. "Boom! We gave each other a big hug. We talked for probably about a minute. I told him how much I love him and good luck. Just have a lot of fun. Live it up."

A Houston native, Rendon was a standout player for Lamar High School before starring at Rice University.

The Nationals drafted Rendon out of Rice in 2011.
