Oh, Baby: Javy Baez’s Walk-Off Gets a Beautiful Sports Illustrated Cover Treatment

Chicago Cubs News

Remember this incredible cover from last year, when Kris Bryant walked the Cubs off against the Indians?

I still smile widely when I look at it.

Well, SI has done it again, this time with Sunday’s Javy Baez walk-off:

There is so much to love about that shot. The jubilation of Baez’s waiting teammates. Baez’s leap as he reaches the plate. But I think my favorite part is the helmet, laying perfectly still on the baseline after being tossed in celebration.

For the record, no, I do not believe in curses or jinxes, and I have absolutely no qualms about the Cubs getting the treatment on this one.

Great moment. Great cover. That is all.
