Check out what Joey Votto did for 6-year-old cancer patient during Reds game

Joey Votto wrote another chapter in his growing legacy as one of the greats on and off the field Thursday. 

The Cincinnati slugger hit a home run to right-center field in the seventh inning against the Mets then handed his bat to a youngster in the front row. 

That fan, 6-year-old Walter Herbert, is a Votto fan who is battling stage four high-risk neuroblastoma.
