Last October, Jacob Landis decided to raise money for those who can't afford cochlear implants by riding his bike from his home in Maryland to all 30 Major League Baseball stadiums.

You may recall the video of a young boy born deaf who heard sounds for the first time because of the same implants – it went viral.

Landis, who also has cochlear implants, said he always roots for the home team with one exception.

“Definitely always rooting for the home team at pretty much every ball park except for the new york Yankees,” Landis said. “That's the one team I didn't root for the home team."

Landis was in Houston on Friday.
