Wilson, Ross Help One Great Kid

SF Giants

Keenan Cahill got a little help from his new friends Cody Ross and Brian Wilson.

A young man who has become an Internet and talk show sensation caught the attention of the World Champion San Francisco Giants.
 
Keenan Cahill has a rare genetic disorder called Maroteaux-Lamy Syndrome that has stunted his growth.  He is 16-year-old, but still appears to be a child. 

The Giants just posted a very entertaining video featuring Cahill, Brian Wilson, Cody Ross and Lou Seal.  The video's purpose is to help promote a upcoming fundraiser for Cahill put on in part by Ross. It's Wednesday night May 25 against the Florida Marlins.

Cahill started posted videos on YouTube a few years back as a peronal outlet and
they went viral.  His story and his videos apparently caught Ross' eye who helped organize the fundraiser.

Here's how the Giants are promoting the night:

What do you get when you combine one of the most popular post-season super stars with the most famous Social Media / Youtube icons on the planet? You'll just have to show up to the park that night to find out! What we can tell you is that your ticket package will include a very cool "Ross is Boss" shirt jersey and a ticket to the game. Keep your eye on the scoreboard to see the full video production of a highly anticipated Giants & Keenan Cahill video! Proceeds from ticket sales will help benefit causes dear to both Cody & Keenan.

The video is worth the time for any Giants' fan.  It show both Ross and Wilson know how to have fun. The four (including Lou Seal) taped it during Spring Training in Scottsdale.
