It was a dream come true for a young Phillies phan and Action News got to tag along!

8-year-old Syron Jones of West Philadelphia suffers from leukemia.

He is also a huge fan of Ryan Howard.

Thanks to the Phillies and the "Kisses for Kyle" foundation Syron and his family made the trip to Citizens Bank Park in style on Monday night, arriving in a limousine.

Soon after arriving at the park, Syron met his hero!

"You're my favorite player," he told Ryan Howard while meeting with him on the field.

"I appreciate that. I'm going to go out here and see what I can do, try and make this come true for you," said Ryan.

Ryan didn't hit a home run but his teammates took care of that for him, Syron got to see three Phillies homers and a big victory!

The Phillies donated the tickets and provided access to the field for batting practice.

Syron summed it all up by saying "This is the awesomest night ever!"
