BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A nine-year-old Red Sox fan visited Fenway Park to meet Baltimore Orioles’ Chris Davis.
Henry Frasca wrote a letter to the first basemen and delivered it to a coach in the Orioles dugout on April 13.
“Thank you for the best day of my life.”

Davis read the note and placed it in his pocket just before his first-inning single snapped the longest slump in baseball history at 0-54.
The note read:
There are two things I want you to know.
First, the way you play baseball has nothing to do with how good a person you are.
But also, you have been so good; you have played in the MLB! You are great; don’t give up. We are rooting for you
The ball player has kept the note with him since that day, tucked inside a small bible, the Orioles said Saturday.
They two met for the first time on Saturday and Frasca tagged along with Davis during his pregame routine.
Frasca also got to throw a ball over the Green Monster from left field.
