The dancing Marlins fan who went viral last week has been identified and was even invited out to Marlins Park Tuesday to throw out the ceremonial first pitch before the game.
The young boy in question is 9-year-old Jonathan Esponda, who says he learned his dancing skills from his parents at home.
Apparently Esponda was caught on the fan cam after a Phillies-Marlins game last year, but the video was not shared on social media until recently. Esponda was 8 at the time and went nuts after realizing he was on camera. The youngster was tracked down by local Spanish radio station Nuevo Zol 106.7 FM and did an interview with them, which you can see below.
The interview at the top was done by FOX Sports Florida, and reporter Allison Williams says Esponda was a big hit at the park. She also Esponda is a real ladies’ man and was kissing girls’ hands upon meeting them.
This kid is a natural born star.
