LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - A wished is granted for an elderly woman, and it was hit out of the park. 

Shirley Pierce is one of Billy Hamilton's biggest fans, and today she had the chance to meet him. 

Hamilton plays for the Cincinnati Reds, but before then he played for the Louisville Bats. 

She said she remembers watching him hit home runs and stealing bases. 

Pierce has been in hospice care for more than a year and was unable to make the trip to Cincinnati to meet him in person. 

So on Saturday, they Skyped. 

Pierce says she couldn't have been more excited. 

"I was so excited," Pierce said. "I got to talk to Billy Hamilton from the Reds!"

Her wish was granted through Opal's Dream Foundation.
