Castro's All-Star Class

 

It was like the first day of school for the Chicago Cubs All-Star Shortstop Starlin Castro, who also jumped into the record books.

 "Every experience is exactly what you make of it," said Mike Quade, the Chicago Cubs Manager.

And that’s exactly what it was.

Castro, the Cubs only all-star, was sent to pinch run in the 5th inning for Colorado Rockies starting Shortstop Troy Tulowitzki (Who was booed by the many Arizona Diamondbacks fans).

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.

   In Castro’s first and only plate appearance, Castro struck out.

  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.
