If you could ask a professional baseball player one question, what would it be?

Phillies relief pitcher Justin De Fratus visited the A.I. Dupont Children's Hospital Thursday to give kids the chance to do just that.

De Fratus fielded questions about his favorite place to play, his favorite movie, and growing up in California.

De Fratus's favorite question came out of a misunderstanding.

De Fratus said, "He asked me what my favorite bar was, but he meant to ask me what my favorite candy bar was, but I answered it, I told him Snickers, a bar, but it ended up being the right answer to the question."

De Fratus said he hopes his visit makes a difference to the kids.

De Fratus said, "Hopefully it's just a little bit of time for them to be taken away from the reality of their situations. Just to see the smiles on the kids faces was pretty awesome."

De Fratus stayed after to sign autographs and take pictures with the kids.
