Chicago Cubs: Willson Contreras does Chicago proud
Thanks to a late rally in fan voting, Willson Contreras punched his first ticket to the All-Star Game. He rocketed up the voting, earning the start behind the dish for the National League. Of course, Contreras made the most of the opportunity.
As the team’s Twitter account pointed out, D.C. proudly stood for the District of Contreras. After his first at-bat, that made a lot of sense.
Contreras started the scoring off for the National League with a solo home run. Cubs fans indeed are no strangers to Contreras homering on the first pitch, as his first Major League home run came under the same context.
As a matter of fact, Contreras also started behind the plate for five innings before being replaced by Miami Marlins catcher J.T. Realmuto. Nevertheless, it was a particular moment for Contreras, and a moment he will certainly never forget.
