Pokémon And MLB Players Collide In This Hilarious Twitter Thread

File under headlines we never thought we'd write! Twitter user Shanna Shi wowed baseball and Pokémon fans alike when she started this viral twitter thread comparing baseball players hair to Pokémon. The thread became so popular that Shanna has already tweeted 60+ comparisons - and attracted the attention of the athletes themselves. MLB players Rhys Hoskins and Trevor Williams both begged for their Shanna-approved doppelgangers, and she gladly complied. Given that there are over 800 Pokémon in that adorable universe, we sure hope there are more tweets on their way. We've posted the bangers but you can see more here.

While teammate Jordan Schaefer was caught in a rundown between 1st and 2nd base, Suzuki booked it from 3rd to score. Grand slam move, strikeout finish.
