Viral baseball star Ashlynn has a new fan after meeting Vlad Guerrero Jr. at a Blue Jays game
Earlier this week, the story of 8-year-old Ashlynn took the internet by storm. A standout player for her regional team, she recently outplayed everyone to earn MVP honors, only to be told she shouldn't be playing baseball because she's a girl.
Her viral fame led her to Rogers Centre on Wednesday as a guest of the Blue Jays, who treated her to some pregame magic before they took on the Indians. Here she is having a face-to-face with none other than Vlad Guerrero Jr.:

Just two baseball phenoms meeting each other and exchanging pleasantries, no big deal.
Adrian Garro joined MLB.com in 2016. Throughout his travels, both Bartolo Colon and Vin Scully have placed their hands on his shoulders. Not at the same time, though. That'd be amazing.
