A video went viral on the internet of a little girl trying cotton candy for the first time at a Mariners game this week.
People are loving three-year-old, Beatrix Hart’s, hilarious reaction at the Seattle baseball game on Wednesday.
Beatrix’s dad, Jake Hart, told ABC News that this was Beatrix’s first time trying the fluffy blue treat. The video pictured Beatrix covered in blue sugar and making faces at the jumbotron.
“Lind had hit a big grand slam and everyone was happy, and we were celebrating with some cotton candy.”
Beatrix ended up on the big screen several times during the game.
The Mariners Team joked back with Beatrix’s family on Twitter that they were going to need more cotton candy.
The Seattle Mariner’s defeated the Texas Rangers by a score of 8-3 at Wednesday night’s game. However, Beatrix seemed to be the star of the game that night.
After the game, the team asked fans to name the “Player of the Game,” but cautioned that Cotton Candy Girl was not eligible for this distinction.
This declaration did not sit well with Seattle Mariners fans on Twitter.
People started using the hashtag #CCG for ‘Cotton Candy Girl.’
Cotton Candy Girl’s scene-stealing performance, and general adorableness, was enough to get Mariners fans on Twitter to nominate her to be named the team’s player of the game.
The team compromised and shared a silly photo of the girl wearing the “Swelmet,” which is the helmet worn by the player of the game after each win.
The actual player of the game was Adam Lind, who hit a pair of home runs.
Beatrix’s ridiculously funny faces went viral after the Mariners shared a clip of the girl on their Twitter page.
“She stood up and was shouting out her love for the game.”
A clip of the video became an official GIF on giphy.com.

“You just think you’re having fun.
“Then you wake up the next morning and the whole world is talking about it.”
