Boy Battling Leukemia Treated to Epic Day Thanks to Make-a-Wish Foundation

Tyler BrookeSenior Analyst IIDecember 8, 2016

The Kansas City Royals and the Make-A-Wish foundation in Missouri made 6-year-old Isai Rojas a very happy kid on Friday, as he had an experience he'll never forget.

Rojas became Muchacho de Hierro on Friday, saving the Royals from KC Cucaracha. According to KCTV5, the superhero helped a woman who had her purse stolen from the villain, took a trip to LegoLand to stop a burglary and even helped chase KC Cucaracha away from Sporting KC practice.

The biggest event of the day, however, was stopping KC Cucaracha and freeing the Royals' mascot, Sluggerrr.

As you can see from the team's tweets and Vine, Muchacho de Hierro saved the day.
