Transcript for 9-year-old sends encouraging letter to MLB player
Finally tonight here, America strong. The boy, the letter and the baseball player moved. 9-year-old Henry fraska at bat in Boston. Nice, Henry! Reporter: A die-hard red sox fan, he also has a big heart. I love baseball, it's my life. Now, you're not here because of the red sox, though, you are here because of Thor yells, right? I am. Reporter: When he saw Chris Davis struggling through a record-setting slump, 0 for 54, Henry wrote a letter. Dear Mr. Davis. I'm a 9-year-old kid and die hard red sox fan. There are two things I want you to know. First, the way you play baseball has absolutely nothing to do with how good a person you are. Also, you are incredible. You play in the MLB, you've done it for a long time and everyone goes through slumps. Don't give up. Reporter: And the day Chris Davis got that letter -- Davis is going to get one! Reporter: The slump was over. And for Chris Davis, it's over, baby. Reporter: And Chris would meet the boy who wrote to him. It meant enough to me for me to carry it around the rest of the day and -- it was pretty cool. I mean, I'd be lying if I said I didn't get a little choked up. Reporter: Together in the locker room, on the field and in the dugout. Reporter Gary Thorne. Anything else you want to say to Chris? Just thank him for -- for the best day of my life. All right. We'll do it again. We need more henrys. And you are incredible, Henry. We loved it. Thank you for watching. I'm David Muir. Hope to see you tomorrow. Good night.
