Moraski, a student at Northern Valley Regional High School in Bergen County, N.J., told NJ.com he had sent Trout a message on Twitter asking if he would make the invitation to Caracciolo. After Trout surprised Moraski by actually doing it – and drawing lots of media attention in the process – the high schooler got hold of Trout and thanked him.
"He just said, ‘No problem, bud,’" Moraski told NJ.com.
Now, not to ruin the romance of this whole thing, but it turns out that Caracciolo already was Moraski’s girlfriend and he already had asked her to the prom.
However, years from now, when they tell the story of how they ended up at their prom thanks to an All-Star outfielder, they can leave that part out.
