Middletown, NJ Little League star Alfred "Big Al" Delia has been making his rounds after his introduction at the Mid-Atlantic regional went viral. He had an interview on Jimmy Kimmel and was invited along with his team to meet the Mets at Citi Field.
Before Wednesday night's contest against the White Sox, Delia was also invited to meet the Yankees at batting practice. He was all smiles when players like Aaron Hicks, Luke Voit, and Gleyber Torres came up to him to chat and to sign some autographs.
Hicks even wore a shirt in honor of Delia that says "Big Al hit dingers," in reference to Delia's claim to fame.
Delia also got to meet his favorite Yankee, Giancarlo Stanton, who got him a little emotional when he snuck up on him to say hi.
"I've liked him since he was on the Marlins," Delia told The Athletic's Marc Carig about Stanton.
Delia' Middletown team didn't make it to the Little League World Series, but he was one of the brightest stars that came out of this year's journey to Williamsport.
