Before Saturday's game, Francisco Lindor watched Puerto Rico in the Little League World Series

This spring, Francisco Lindor and Team Puerto Rico inspired the country as they went on a marvelous run to the World Baseball Classic final. Their blonde locks were so iconic, there was a massive run on hair bleach in the country as everyone wanted to support Team Rubio (Team Blonde in Spanish).
