BATTLE CREEK, Mich. — It's a match-up watched by millions of people across the country and one commercial airing during the World Series features an 11-year old from right here in West Michigan.

Adrionna Ramos, a sixth grader at Lakeview Middle School,  is loving the publicity so far, she said. She's had other small roles in shows like Chicago P.D. and Chicago Fire, but the World Series commercial is her biggest gig yet.

"FOX called us up and asked if we wanted to do this," explained Adrionna. "They sent us a video of the Blues Brothers and told us to watch it because the commercial would be something like this. We traveled two and a half hours to Chicago and we did the commercial."

It's not Adrionna's first television job, but it's her biggest so far. She says watching it live was extra special.

"When I saw it I was like 'Oh my goodness', then I finally realized it's the World Series and millions of people are going to see me," said Adrionna.

"It's the World Series," said Gene Ramos, Adrionna's father. "It's world-wide. Baseball is popular in Japan. It's everywhere."

A commercial for the Cubs isn't Gene's first choice, but he says a job's a job.

"For the record, I'm a Tigers fan," said Gene.

The commercial has aired a few times already, but the family says the excitement is still setting in.

"It's just mind-blowing," said Adrionna. "It's crazy."

Adrionna says her mom's phone has been blowing up with people recognizing her on television, but she says the best part of all of this was missing a day of school.
