You’ve been dreaming of this day for as long as you can remember. The chance to get a Hollywood heartthrob to notice your baseball talents and want to put a glove on your hand to catch a ball, or for him to just give you a high-five because he sees how much you love the game.
You’ve seen the way he interacts with other players on the field. You’ve watched Christian Taylor and other MLB players talk about how much they enjoy playing with and against him. In an interview with ESPN, Taylor said he thinks Robert Pattinson’s smile and his energy for the game make him ‘the complete package as an athlete.’
So when you’re finally going to get a peek behind the scenes of what makes him tick, you’re not going to be disappointed. Here’s a close look at what it’s going to take to get Rob to bat for you.
You’ve heard the saying ‘you catch more flies with honey’, and that’s essentially how you get a Hollywood star to notice you. You’ve got to be subtle, but you’ve also got to be passionate about what you do. So when he asks you to throw out a softball or hand him a football, you don’t have to think too hard about which one to choose. You already know what your answer is going to be, and that’s exactly why you picked those items in the first place. So when he gives you that iconic smile and says ‘thank you’ as he pockets the ball or glove, you know you’ve done your job.
You don’t just get any old baseball player, you know. They’ve got to have a certain look to them. They’ve got to be tall and strong, they’ve got to love the game, and they’ve got to be able to hit a ball far. If you don’t believe me, just take a look at the roster of the New York Yankees. They’ve got the perfect mixture of all those things.
So, if you want to get Rob to notice you, you’re going to have to be persistent, but not annoying. You won’t get far with an overly enthusiastic attitude, because he might just brush you off. But if you make him laugh, ask him a question about his family, or just show him how much you admire his work, he’s more likely to respond. The more he likes you, the more he’s going to want to help you out. That’s the key to getting any celebrity to take notice of you.
Of course, it doesn’t hurt to have the perfect glove, perfect background, and the most gorgeous smile in the world. But if you want to truly catch a ball from Christian Taylor or Derek Jeter, you’ve got to have the skills to back it up. They’re not going to hand you a ball just because you asked for one. You’ve got to be able to throw, catch, and return the favor. And that’s a skill set that takes some time to develop. But once you do, you’re going to have the ability to entertain the fans of a major league team. And maybe even get your own jersey signed.
Baseball isn’t the only sport that he’s interested in, either. He’s also a big fan of the Los Angeles Lakers. So if you want to get him to come to your game, you’re going to have to show up to plenty of Laker games this year. He’s going to be at a lot of them, so you might want to consider getting a season ticket. It would also be wise to develop a relationship with an L.A. based sports team. For example, the Los Angeles Clippers cheer on their beloved Laker squad. So if you want to make sure he knows about your team, get some T-shirts made with your team’s logo on it and wear them often. You can also start a Twitter account to keep track of which Laker games he’s going to be at, so you don’t waste any time showing up at those that he’s not going to be at. But above all else, you’ve got to have fun. He doesn’t want to do anything that he doesn’t enjoy, so if you’re not having fun, then he’s not likely to have fun either. So find a way to relax and let your hair down, because this is going to be a lot of fun. You’re going to learn so much, and he’s going to like you for it.
