San Jose Mercury News- Lyndsey Dworkin woke up Saturday morning, climbed out of bed and asked her mom a question.

“Did that all really happen last night?” she wondered. “Otherwise, I just had the craziest dream.”

It was real, her mom assured her. Every magical moment.

Brandon Belt really did tell the 12-year-old cancer survivor that he would hit a home run for her at the San Jose Giants game. And Belt really did deliver in the first inning, blasting a towering shot over the right-field fence at Municipal Stadium.

The autographed home run ball sitting in the Dworkin home in Mountain View now serves as proof. It says: “To Lyndsey, My Good luck charm. — Brandon Belt.”

A ball is signed for Lyndsey Dworkin, a 12 year old girl who last year was diagnosed with Medulla Blastoma, a brain tumor. Inspired by her story, members of the San Jose Giants Players personally presented to her a pink autographed jersey with the promise to throw out a ceremonial first pitch upon completion of her treatment.

Belt made his promise just before game time, after watching Lyndsey throw out the ceremonial first pitch. The girl had chosen to wear a Belt T-shirt for the occasion, so as she trotted off the mound, Belt raced out of the dugout to say hello.

Belt, on a rehab assignment from a broken thumb, felt an instant kinship with the girl on the mend. Lyndsey has undergone 31 bouts of radiation and nine rounds of chemotherapy. At the end of the conversation, Belt told her: “I’m going to hit a home run for you.”

Brandon Belt.  Hit and miss power hitter.  Player that has been on everyone’s fantasy team already in his 3+ years in the bigs.  God damn wish granter.   Heroes get remembered but legends never die.

Below is what Belt looked like as he trotted the bases.
