When 19-year-old outfielder Juan Soto was promoted to the MLB, the entire baseball world took notice. A player this young and with so much hype was sure to garner attention from the media, especially in the nation's capital as a member of the Washington Nationals.
He's been wildly impressive so far, and with the Nats in the Bronx this week, his father and two uncles decided to pay him a visit, but it seems one of his uncles was more excited about the opposing team.

At least Soto's uncle is honest. You can't knock him for pulling for this favorite squad!
Either way, it's all in good fun, as Soto and his hot bat

The Nats are currently battling with the Braves for first place in the NL East, and for Soto's sake, it'd be helpful if his uncle pulled for Washington to split the series with New York so the club doesn't fall further behind.
