Uber-Dodger Fan Christian Haupt Featured in All-Star Game Commercial

A couple of years ago I shared a story about 3-year old Christian Haupt.  Check that out here.  He had gained some fame as a little Baseball prodigy and an uber-Dodger fan.  He earned a cameo role in the Adam Sandler film "That's My Boy" as a Baseball playing kid, and would soon become the youngest person to ever throw a first pitch at a Major League Baseball game at the age of 3 in 2012.  The above photo, taken by Photographer Mark J. Terrill of the AP, of that first pitch went a bit viral at the time.

A couple of years later his fame appears to not have abated.  Just before the recently concluded All-Star Game in Minnesota Christian was the main actor in a FOX pregame show introduction.  Check it out at the very bottom.  Below is a photo of the film-shoot for the video, provided by his mom.

Wow!  It's amazing what this kid has done in just a few short years.  BTW, the kid is still a phenom on the field.  He currently plays on Orlando Cepeda's traveling Baseball team for youths - who knew there was such a thing?
