PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- It was an iconic moment during the Phillies parade in 2008. In a sea of millions of people, 18-month-old Will Gregg stole the show.

Some may even argue Will got a bigger reaction than former Phillies players Chase Utley or Ryan Howard.

Will's mother asked her toddler at the time, "How big is Will?" and with each raise of his arms, the crowd cheered.
