When this Reds fan tweeted at Brandon Phillips before a game, he responded not with an RT, but with a picture

When Tori Havener found out she was going to St. Louis to see her Reds battle the Cardinals, she did what anybody would do: tweet at second baseman Brandon Phillips. 

Sure enough, Tori got her wish when Phillips took some time out from his long toss to sign a few autographs and take some pictures. 

Was driving 465 miles and numerous tweets worth it?

"Absolutely," Tori said. "I'd do it all over again in a heartbeat." 

See, everyone? Tweets really can come true.
