Young fan (and baseball player heir) receives bat from A's outfielder Michael Taylor

A young A's aficionado got a special present from Michael Taylor before Tuesday's Astros-A's game at O.co Coliseum. The A's outfielder delivered a bat to Johnny Weekly (blue hat), who didn't get a chance to attend many games last year due to a rare illness.

Johnny was named in honor of his great-grandfather, and former Houston Colt .45's outfielder John Weekly.
