This is a moment that Christopher Morel will never forget. The Cubs prospect had been dreaming of making his team debut, and that moment came on Tuesday night against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
With Wrigley Field buzzing, Morel stepped up to the plate for the first time late in the action. With a 3-2 count, he got a pitch right down the middle and he blasted a monster dinger to left. This is epic.
From the moment Morel made contact, everyone knew that ball was gone. Morel was understandably fired up, forgetting to touch first base. This kid has all the potential in the world and things are off to a hot start for him.
