Fun little anecdote from Scott Allen of the Washington Post, who tells the story of how Nationals left-hander Gio Gonzalez helped a high school senior ask his girlfriend to prom.

Nick Rolle asked his grandfather, who happens to be MASN studio host Johnny Holliday, if a Nationals player might be nice enough to help him make the prom thing a little more special and Gonzalez obliged, so the couple got field passes for a game last week and Gonzalez came over with a signed baseball that looked like this:

She said yes, the happy couple hung out with Gonzalez for a while on the field, and they had a good time at prom over the weekend.

Say it with me now, everyone: Awwwwwww.
