It really goes to show you what a kind gesture can do for someone who is ill, this kid sent to him his home run baseball signed a long with a letter.
The kid is well now, and he’s showing how he appreciated that visit:

Dear Andrew McCutchen,

This summer I suffered a brain abscess and spent most of my time in Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. During my stay I was lucky enough to meet you when you visited to do art with the kids. Every night I looked forward to watching the Pirates and was thrilled to know you were coming to visit. Baseball is my favorite sport and I was not sure if I would ever be able to play again. Your visit helped inspire me to get better.

I am [feeling] better now and playing baseball again. This past weekend I played two games and hit three home runs. I am sending my first home run ball to you as a thank you.

Thank you again for the visit and picture you drew me in the hospital.

Your Friend,

Matt Groeber
