That's what it's all about, right there -- truly a moment this young Altuve fan won't ever forget.
During Altuve's Mexico Series media session on Sunday, he mentioned this special moment:

It seems like we have to lead by example, be good guys on and off the field."
Bregman was involved in a similar moment prior to Sunday's game, and it was also pretty fantastic:
