An awesome thing happened after this video of a 9-year-old girl pitching went viral

The real-life Ginny Baker is out there somewhere.

Perhaps she's on the USA women's baseball team, which last month lost to Canada in the WBSC Women's Baseball World Cup bronze-medal game. Perhaps she's already playing with an independent league team.

Or perhaps she's even younger.

University of Missouri hitting coach Matt Lisle found and shared a video of a 9-year-old girl showing off her pitching mechanics Thursday night. As of Sunday morning, it had 1.21 million views on Twitter. And thanks to the slo-mo, one thing is certain: She can throw.

Then a fun thing happened.

The official MLB Twitter account replied.

Then Rob Friedman, who breaks down the ins and outs of pitching from his stellar account @PitchingNinja, weighed in.

And former Cy Young winner and World Series champion Orel Hershiser chimed in, saying he's also a fan.

Then, something even more amazing happened.

Other people began posting videos and photos of their daughters playing baseball. And this is why the internet can sometimes be good.

Throwing like a girl means bringing the heat. And we're here for it.
