There is no doubt that Baltimore Orioles player Chris Davis has had terrible years and even now he is the holder of the worst hit streak in Major League history, when between the end of last year and the start of this season he linked 62 appearances to the plate without unstoppable.

Very few have improved for him this season, as he is hitting .179 and has a -1.0 WAR in the season; however, there are those who still believe in him, how the little 9-year-old fan, Henry Frasca, who during Davis's bad run wrote him a letter telling him "not to give up" and "just wanted to give him a hug" to do it feel better.

Now, Frasca and Davis have met the weekend in the match between the Orioles and the Red Sox at Fenway Park, being a very emotional moment, perhaps one of the most exciting of the baseball season and showing what it is about the sport and that beyond the players, there is the person and the human being that feels.
