Three weeks after a cell phone video captured Matt Kemp giving his cleats, hat and jersey to a terminally ill fan, Joshua Jones, the two were reunited Monday. Kemp flew Jones and his family from the Bay Area down to Los Angeles to watch the Dodgers play at the Angels.
According to the report on MLB.com, Jones also met Clayton Kershaw, Angels star Mike Trout, Dodgers president and CEO Stan Kasten and third base coach Tim Wallach. Wallach reportedly connected Jones and Kemp earlier this month after Jones' father spoke to him at a Giants-Dodgers game in San Francisco.
Jones, 19, is battling terminal brain cancer.

"This is a dream come true for my son here," said Jones' father Steve. "I mean, look at him -- he doesn't even know what to say."
