Cordova got the whole VIP experience ... he hung out in the Coors Field locker room and even took part in pre-game lineup talks on the diamond.
13-year-old Josh Cordova was the youth baseball umpire who officiated the game in Lakewood on June 15th that ended with a brawl between adults. Today, a MLB umpire invited Josh to Coors Field as an encouragement (and to talk shop). #9News - pics from @Rockiespic.twitter.com/Egd6OHVEnn
In fact, Guccione even gave Cordova his MLB jersey and chest protector ... which Josh says he's going to use right away for his next game!!
"I thought it was a perfect opportunity to reach out to Josh, and not only to him, but his family, and to say to him, 'I'm proud of you, and I'm rooting for you, and what you did is the right thing,'" Guccione told reporters before the game.
"I'm super happy for him, and I wanted to encourage him to keep going forward."
As for Josh, he seemed to love the experience, and said, "I'm very appreciative for everyone that's reached out to me."
