The art of the ask is a key component to the rite of passage known as high school prom. Get it right and the answer is yes, get it wrong and you may become Internet famous.
Get a star player for one of the hottest teams in Major League Baseball? That’s also the stuff of legends, and in a good way.
That’s apparently what one intrepid Chicago Cubs fan did, roping Cubs’ third baseman Kris Bryant in to helping him ask a potential date to prom:

It must have been a nervous 90 minutes for Vince, because according to the Twitter response, that’s exactly how long it took for her to answer his question.
@Vince_Santoria YES ILL GO WITH YOU

We’re assuming Vince did his homework, because using a Cubs player to ask a White Sox fan to prom would just be all sorts of bad form.
Now, get your tux and wrist corsage…and get to thinking — because you’ve set a rather high bar for your prom adventure to come. After all, going all the way to Spring Training in Arizona to ask a girl to prom certainly is upping the ante.
