Alex Bregman shows he's ready for bigs, delivers perfect interview amid sunflower seed onslaught

You may have looked at the three hits by Alex Bregman in Sunday's SiriusXM Futures Game and been like, "This guy is definitely ready for the Majors. Somebody should call him up now. I might call him up now."

That was great,  don't get us wrong. But the Astros No. 1 prospect ('s 18th overall) really showed his big league potential during an in-game interview in the eighth inning -- when he was able to keep his composure as a teammate sprinkled sunflower seeds into his hair.

Mid-interview sunflower seed showers are extremely common during Major League Baseball games, so we're glad Bregman has already mastered how to handle them.
