Earlier in the week, a 13-year-old Reds fan, Brock Johnson — or B-Rock — had the opportunity to meet his favorite baseball player, Brandon Phillips, courtesy of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. B-Rock has suffered from an unnamed autoimmune disease his entire life. Next month, he’s headed to National Institute of Health in Maryland for a rare type of bone-marrow transplant.
B-Rock spent Friday at the Great American Ballpark, with the hopes of meeting all of the Reds players in person. Well, B-Rock’s wish was granted, and the Reds players were happy to be a part of it. B-Rock has asked that people pray for him as he heads to Maryland for this unprecedented procedure.
To experience some of B-Rock’s awesome day, follow along below. If you want to follow B-Rock on Twitter, click here.
