In the video appears Jose Altuve, Alex Bregman and Carlos Correa, who the fan says was laughing about the heckling along with the Astros fans present.

The fan, who was called “hero” and “legend” by many Twitter users, also shared a video he recorded on the same day where you can see a group of kids asking Altuve for an autograph and as Altuve runs off the guy screams “Cheater!”

“It’s just jokes, relax Astros fans," he tweeted.
