In a video posted to Twitter, Kolt Kyler, of Pierceton, Indiana, jumped around and then sobbed in his father's arms after he was surprised with tickets to a Chicago Cubs game at Wrigley Field.

"[He] may or may not be their biggest fan," his half-sister, Hannah Himes, tweeted as she shared the video.

The gift was to reward Kolt's hard work on the farm, at school and on the baseball field.

As his dad thanked him, he presented Kolt with an envelope and said there was one final thing to be done and the instructions were contained inside.
