Remember during the 2002 World Series when J.T. Snow saved a very young bat boy from getting demolished at the plate in Game 5? Meet Darren Baker, the son of Washington Nationals manager Dusty Baker.

Darren is all grown up now and shared a special moment with his father on Thursday, officially signing with the California Golden Bears baseball program.

In his Instagram post, Darren wrote "Dreams do come true" under a photo of him putting pen on paper while sitting next to his father, who has an arm over his shoulder.

Later, the Bears would also express excitement regarding their new signee.

Darren is a senior at Jesuit High School in California, where he is listed at 5-foot-11 and 155 pounds. According to Perfect Game USA, he runs a 6.63 second 60-yard dash, which ranks him in the 94th percentile of the 2017 class.
