CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

One 6-year-old die hard Cincinnati Reds fan got to meet his favorite team Saturday for the first time.

Jordan Wolfe, of Northern Kentucky, has spent over 35,000 hours of his short life in the hospital, but he knows every player, their number, position and where they bat in the line up.

"He was born at UC and went straight to Children's Medical Center and was in the NICU for three and a half months. Since then he's had lung problems and had like 60 plus hours of belly surgeries," Jacquline Teegarden said.

Jordan has been on oxygen since he was a one-year-old and has to be fed intravenously, but the struggle with health issues hasn't diminished his infectious smile or his love for the Reds.

This year Jordan watched every Reds game, even while he was in the ICU and was on a ventilator for three months.

"He watches every single game. We were in ICU from April to July this past Summer and he watched every single game even in ICU and if we missed the game live we would watched the replay," Teegarden said.

In his free time, Jordan acts as an announcer as he plays baseball in his living room. 

Jordan was invited to meet his favorite Reds players in the a meet and greet Saturday.

For Jordan, it was a dream come true.

"This has been awesome. We've been trying to get with the Reds for a long time for him to meet them. That's all he talks about is the Reds and he has the Cincinnati Reds baseball cards and he lines them up in their positions and how they play on the field so this has been a great experience and he got to meet some of his favorite players," Teegarden said.

Jordan's condition is chronic and his family has been told that doctors have done about all they can do, but one again the Reds are bringing a little joy to a difficult life.
