Jonathan Esponda went viral last week.

When a Vine of the 8-year-old showing off his ridiculous moves during a Miami Marlins game surfaced, Esponda became an internet sensation. People even wondered if the short video was a hoax. It turns out the moment was real and occurred sometime during the 2013 season. The clip is currently played at Marlins Park to fire fans up. And Tuesday night, during a game against the Philadelphia Phillies, the young fan returned to the ballpark — and didn't disappoint.

Esponda threw out the first pitch and, during an interview with Fox Sports Florida's Allison Williams, showed he's a perfect gentleman.

Maybe he's a good luck charm. Miami beat Philly 5-4 in 11 innings.
