In the midst of the ALCS, Houston Astros star Carlos Correa made time to visit a teen battling cancer in the hospital and made a promise that filled him with hope. Correa and his fiance, former Miss Texas USA, Daniella Rodriguez, met 16-year-old Jalen Garcia Friday at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, CBS Houston reports.

The teen went viral last week after his high school football team traveled some 350 miles from Laredo, Texas to see him.

Garcia was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma when he was in the 8th grade, forcing him to stop playing football, his mom told CBS News. However, the football team still treated him like a player.
