J.J. Watt should be immediately inducted into the Fan Interaction Hall of Fame.

The Houston Texans' star came to the rescue of one Ashlee Sanchez, who bought tickets to Watt's annual charity softball game on Friday but ran into a time conflict.

So she reached out to Watt via Twitter:

Watt came through like a pro, penning the perfect note to her boss requesting that she be excused. Wish this guy was playing when I needed to get out of gymnastics at summer camp.

In a Twitter post retweeted by Sanchez, a family member seemed to enjoy the national coverage of the exchange:

Whether it's congratulating national anthem singers, dancing with the crowd or applauding his gutsiest fans, Watt seems like a sports hero who gets it.
