Little Leaguer is granted big-league birthday wish

Part of Brady Parker's birthday present from his parents, Jamie and Vanessa, was a trip to Minute Maid Park to see his first Major League Baseball game.

The current Little Leaguer was astounded by the size of the field. But Parker's thrilling day didn't stop there.

During batting practice, Royals pitcher Tommy Hottovy put the icing on the cake when he tossed Parker a ball.
