That's a lot of money for a young Astros fan to come up with, but Eli was willing to work for it. He started selling lemonade in his neighborhood to raise money to buy tickets to the game.

Alex Bregman, Houston Astros third baseman and shortstop, heard about what Eli was doing and decided to make his dreams a reality with the help of Houston icon Mattress Mack. Bregman's camp surprised Eli at his home with three tickets to the game and the Breggy Bomb mascot.

"This is very exciting," said Eli. He was asked if he thought he had a chance of going to the World Series and the boy just shook his head saying, "No, not at all."

Well, his hard work paid off and now Eli can watch the game from Minute Maid Park and even enjoy some lemonade there if he likes.

"I am near tears, over the moon, so excited. The Astros are so special to us and this opportunity is so crazy. My kids get to see it, go to a World Series game, it's beyond," said Eli's mom, Jenni House.
