Oh, man. Iowahawk is right — make sure the Kleenex box is handy for this one.
Meet Kolt Kyler, 9, of Indiana, a lifelong Cubs fan who just passed a “test” his father had given him by not complaining about the extra chores he was given. His reward? A trip to Wrigley to see his favorite team.

The video was shot by Kolt’s half-sister, Hannah Himes. Hannah wrote in an email to ABC News:
“Kolt has been helping his dad on their farm for a couple years with their cows, but recently Kolt got two pigs to show for 4H [a youth development and mentoring organization] for the first time so he’s had to work extra hard!,” Himes wrote to ABC News in an email. “He also made the travel baseball team again this year so he’s been busy with regular season, travel team, farm chores, cub scouts, and he is also an honor roll student!”
Well deserved Kolt!
Even better? It sounds like Kolt might get a chance to meet the team. This is from Cubs outfielder/3rd baseman Kris Bryant:
Can't wait to see you Kolt! https://t.co/86rcxatYub

It definitely looks like Kolt is going to have a day to remember at the ball park:
