At long last, after nearly a month of big league action and countless articles dissecting the meaning, Kris Bryant has homered in the Major Leagues. We knew it was coming, and here it is.
Just look at that swing and tell me you could see how a cascade of homers would not come eventually:
I lucked out to be at the game yesterday, and the atmosphere as Bryant homered – even in Milwaukee – was absolutely electric. Sure, everything fell apart for the Cubs from there, but, for that moment, it was a pretty great time.
And, all in good fun, Bryant’s teammates made sure to leave the dugout as he returned from his home run trot.
