WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Ashtin Gerberg of Leland is already an internet sensation after a video of his best impersonation of Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard went viral.

Now the 5-year-old is getting a trip of a lifetime. Saturday, Ashtin and his father Aaron traveled to New York to meet Noah Syndergaard and the rest of the Mets during batting practice.

It only gets better for the pint-sized pitcher, Wednesday Ashtin will throw out the first pitch for the team as they face the defending World Series champs, the Kansas City Royals.
