KANSAS CITY, Mo. - A seven-year-old girl ended up being the star at the “K” on Tuesday night, and it happened before the game ever started.

Isabel Einwich stood right out on the field at Kauffman Stadium and threw out the ceremonial first pitch- to her 11 year-old brother, Michael.

The Ronald McDonald house in Kansas City asked Isabel to throw out the first pitch. She's stayed there dozens of times while going to doctors’ appointments and surgeries to treat symptoms of Spina Bifida.

Just last Tuesday, she had a cast removed from her leg after a recent surgery.

Isabel's mother says she's just thrilled her family got to experience this once-in-a-lifetime moment, especially little Isabel who's always cheerful, even through her less than fun doctor's appointments.

“She is an amazing little girl that it doesn't matter what we do, what we have to do for her. She will do it. She's determined to do what everybody else does," said her mother, Rocio.
