Brandon Belt made a promise, and he came through.
After telling 12-year old cancer survivor Lyndsey Dworkin that he would hit a home run for her, the rehabbing San Francisco Giants first baseman fulfilled his promise and bashed a dinger in the first inning for the Advanced Class-A San Jose Giants on Friday.
The ending of the story is even sweeter.
After officials recovered the ball, Belt signed it with a note and gave it to Dworkin.
“To Lyndsey, My Good luck charm. — Brandon Belt.”
Overall, it was a kind and classy gesture from the 26-year-old first baseman.
