This boy's face says it all! Before the first pitch, Astros fan favorite Jose Altuve met with a boy and surprised him with some gear.

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- The look on a young Houston Astros fan's face says it all! The Major League Baseball shared photos of second baseman Jose Altuve giving away his batting glove to a boy during Game 2 against the Boston Red Sox.

The video above is from a previous story.

"What it's all about," the MLB tweeted.

Not knowing what the outcome of Game 2 would be, Altuve seemed humbled and met with the fan right before the first pitch.

The Astros ended up falling to the Red Sox 9-5, but we're almost positive that boy will remember that as one of the best games.

Now, Game 3 is very important. Historically, teams who are up two and one in a best-of-seven series have gone on to win the series more than 70% of the time.

But, right now, the series is tied. Astros manager Dusty Baker said pitcher Jose Urquidy is more motivated for Game 3.

Jose, I think he was a little rookie pitching in the World Series, and he's a very calm, cool, very mature dude, and so if someone can handle it like Jose, we think he can handle it," Baker said.

The first pitch is set for 7:07 p.m.
