Tucker Vasher is a big fan of Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout.
Vasher, who suffers from brittle bone disease, received a surprise from Trout just days before he underwent surgery.
And it was a pretty awesome surprise . . .
"This is like the the greatest day of my life," Vasher said.
The two are friends on Twitter and occasionally message back and forth about Vasher's progress.
Trout is tied for third in the American League with 16 home runs, and he clearly knocked another one out of the park with this gesture.

Trout MVP in Jeter's final ASG
Beloved New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter helped the American League to a 5-3 All-Star Game win Tuesday night, going 2-for-2 with a double and a run in his final Midsummer Classic. MVP honors, however, went to the almost-undisputed best player in baseball, Mike Trout; the Los Angeles Angels outfielder went 2-for-3 with a double, triple and two RBIs -- including the game-winner. St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright, meanwhile, stirred some controversy by saying he intentionally took it easy on Jeter (he later walked back a bit on his comments). Did Jeter get snubbed? Do you have a problem with Wainwright?
