There are some things that you just can't make up, and New York Mets prospect Tim Tebow recently made a fan's day at a game. Tebow was more than happy to oblige - he walked over, said hello and shook Seth's hand through the netting.

The young fan-over whelmed with emotion after waving Tebow over and shaking his hand through the net.

After the game, Tebow and Seth met again.

Bosh has high-functioning autism and also suffers from neurofibromatosis according to the Tampa Bay Times.

"When Seth came back to his seat, he was crying", Ileanna Bosch, Seth's mother, told the newspaper.

During a minor league baseball game on July 29 in Port Charlotte, Fla., Tebow was awaiting his turn at bat for the St. Lucie Mets when he was approached by a boy in the stands. The boy, who has a tumor behind his right eye which makes it hard to play sports, went back to his seat next to his parents with tears of joy streaming down his face.

Tebow subsequently pulverized a three-run homer to the delight of everyone in attendance. Tebow hasn't exactly lit it up at the plate, but he has hit better since being promoted, improving his batting average (from.220 to.248) and OPS (.648-.725). "I started crying, to", she recalled.
