Alex Cora went above and beyond to grant a young Red Sox fan's birthday wish on Tuesday.
Before Boston's series opener vs. the Royals, Cora spotted the fan with a sign that read, "I'm here for my b-day, but what I really want is to meet Mookie!" The Red Sox manager brought the youngster onto the field to meet not only Mookie Betts, but the entire team.

That's a moment that kid won't ever forget, and an extremely classy gesture by Cora.
The Red Sox look to make the young fan's birthday even better with a victory in Game 1 of the three-game set in Kansas City.
