Young Pirate Fan Star of the Show in Pirates' Marathon Win

Starling Marte's homer in the 18th inning beat the Washington Nationals Sunday but we wonder if the game's real MVP was actually in the stands.

 

It took the Pittsburgh Pirates nearly six hours and 18 innings to defeat the Nationals Sunday on the road in Washington and this young fan was there for all of the highs and lows. 

Dressed in a bright green t-shirt with facial expressions that revealed exactly what was on his mind, it didn't take long for the camera crew and Pirates' broadcasters to zoom in and capture his priceless reactions to the action on the field.

Finally, in the 18th inning, Starling Marte delivered the home run that rewarded everyone.
