Yuli Gurriel met his adorable mini-me, and the resemblance was uncanny
When Astros players take batting practice, they're locked in, serious, and paying no attention to anything around them except for their bats, the BP thrower, and positioning themselves properly in the cage.
Nah. Just kidding. While Astros hitters take their daily preparation seriously, they also know how to keep things light when they're getting ready for a game. Especially if they spot a youngster behind the ropes whom they find exceptionally adorable.
Such was the case on Friday, when
Big Yuli spotted Little Yuli standing behind the ropes and called him over to the cage. Little Yuli, seemingly unfazed and as cool as can be, sauntered over, met a handful of Astros players, and, as a bonus, obtained some autographs.
No word on if the two exchanged styling tips.
The Astros continue to show this season that even though baseball is a serious business, there's always time to have a laugh or two with the wee ones.
