'You're absolutely part of the squad': Altuve thanks Watt with whiskey and letter

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Houston Astros second baseman Jose Altuve is thanking who he calls his "H-Town brother" Houston Texans star J.J. Watt.

Thursday night on Twitter, Watt posted a photo of a letter that Altuve sent him with another photo of a bottle of whiskey.

"From one H-Town brother to another, thanks for all you've done this year for the city we call home. Your support for all things Houston - from hurricane relief, to being our number one fan - has been nothing short of incredible. So I hope you'll accept this fine whiskey gift I gave all my teammates following our championship win because to me, you're absolutely part of the squad," Altuve wrote in the letter.

Watt responded with the tweet "Much love @JoseAltuve27 #MVP."

Watt walked out on the field with his crutches to throw out the first pitch at Minute Maid Park for game 3 of the World Series.

Watt raised more than $37 million for Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.
