Then, you've got fans like Raymundo Ramirez. The handmade sign he held up while wearing a Jose Altuve jersey may give the you the giggles. But the backstory on how he ended up at the World Series game may give you "the feels."

"We knew we were going to be in the playoffs, in the post-season. And, well, we just had to save it," said Ramirez of all the money saved by he and his father over the last several weeks.

His siblings even contributed to the pot because they know how much baseball means to Ramirez and his dad.  

"My dad taught me about baseball since I was like eight."

He was just a few years younger than J.J. Ceniceros is today. Ceniceros' teacher at Klein Oak High School made him a deal, "if I show up on TV I get extra credit."
