Joe Torre and Major League Baseball are making sure that one young man will get to root on his favorite team at this year's Fall Classic.

Six-year-old Kansas City Royals fan Noah Wilson is battling Ewing sarcoma, a rare bone cancer. Now that the Royals are in the World Series for the first time since 1985, his parents have been trying to find a way to raise money so their son can go to one of the games.

When Torre—MLB's Executive Vice President of Baseball Operations—heard about the story, he stepped up in a big way for the boy.

Thanks to Torre and MLB, Wilson is going to see his team battle the San Francisco Giants in the World Series.
