Kris Bryant helped a kid get a prom date


The next best thing, after getting to go to prom with Kris Bryant, is having Bryant ask you out on behalf of your date. Before a Cactus League game this past weekend, a Cubs fan asked Bryant to hold up a sign while he took a picture. The sign read, “Julia, will you go to prom with Vince?” There were two check boxes for “yes” and “no”.

Julia said yes.

Vince also got to take a picture with Ben Zobrist in what he called “the greatest week of my life”.

Bryant, the defending National League Rookie of the Year Award winner, seems to be a man of the people. Last year, he surreptitiously drove a Lyft and quizzed people about himself. He also lip synced to a Frozen song and put it on Instagram.
