Cubs interact on Twitter with young fan recently surprised with tickets

The parents of 9-year-old Kolt Kyler were well aware of this, which is why they made a decision to reward their son with ticket to see his beloved Chicago Cubs.

The tickets in question are for a June 3 game against the St. Louis Cardinals.

In the video that was posted to Twitter, Kolt is told that he's been working hard, doing well in school and helping out on the family farm.

Hard work pays off. Kolt Kyler is 9 years old.

Check out the emotional video as Kolt learns that he will get to go to Wrigley Field for the first time. Kolt, a diehard Cubs fan, broke down in tears when he received the tickets from his father, Andy.
