8-year-old with brain tumor meets Chris Sale.

The family of an 8-year-old cancer patient thought they were just getting tickets to a recent White Sox game, but the team surprised them with much more.

The 8-year-old, Darnell, got to meet star pitcher Chris Sale, as well as other White Sox players while on a personal tour of the team clubhouse.

Because it was Bulls night at the ballpark, Darnell even got to meet Bulls forward Doug McDermott.

According to the video, the meeting was organized by the Bear Hugs program.
