Kris Bryant put his matchmaking skills to work and helped a young fan get a date to prom

Kris Bryant wears many hats (well, just the Cubs cap, but this is a metaphor so work with us). He's a third baseman, an outfielder, a Lyft driver, a social media maven, an undercover college student and an ambassador for the city of Las Vegas. Turns out he's a matchmaker too, because he recently helped a young fan get a date to prom:

She, of course, said yes, but in all caps because she was presumably (and understandably) very excited to be asked to prom by proxy Kris Bryant:
