Coverage of the 2016 College World Series has spilled beyond the diamond. For example, Jake Arrieta lost a bet and now has to get a tattoo. But the biggest sensation in Omaha has been Sammy DiDonato.
DiDonato is the youngster who trolled ESPN in a staring contest performance. The 10-year-old Omaha native is a Little League catcher himself, according to the Omaha World-Herald. He is the son of a retired lieutenant in the Omaha Police Department.
"It's amazing that there's that many people just watching me," DiDonato told ESPN's Kaylee Hartung when asked his thoughts about the viral video seen by more than 30 million.
The youngster, who attends every College World Series game he can, says his stare-down talents come from "brothers messing around with me."
The youth, unfazed by his newfound fame, will surely have the best show-and-tell presentation at school in the fall.
