"Every experience is exactly what you make of it," said Mike Quade, the Chicago Cubs Manager.
And that’s exactly what it was.
Castro read the sign from Bruce Bochy and took off towards second base, beating Alex Alva’s throw.
Then, Alva bobbled the ball and Castro was able to take third.
Now Castro at third, Ricky Weeks is at the dish. Weeks hits a slow hopper towards the pitcher Jordan Waldan and Castro takes off towards home. But the ball was it on Waldan’s right side who bare-hands the ball and throws Castro out at home.
Quade admitted that was a mistake on Castro’s part. But he is the youngest player in the game at 21 years of age.
It was great for Castro to get to play instead of one of his idols, Jose Reyes.
Hopefully for Cubs fans that this won’t be Castro’s last All-Star game. But with our luck.
It probably will be.
