Chicago Cubs: Seiya Suzuki hits his first MLB home run vs. Milwaukee Brewers
It’s great to see Suzuki embraced by his Cubs teammates, the fans, and the city of Chicago. It’ll be great to see if he can continue hitting home runs like this. He may not be enough to simply get the Cubs back on track as a contender, but maybe Suzuki can be a part of a quick turnaround and fast rebuild for Chicago.
So far, Suzuki is off to a really good start.
Sure, it’s super early and there’s no way anyone can realistically read into things with the incredibly small sample size, but Cubs fans should be excited about Suzuki having a .375 batting average and this impressive home run after the Cubs’ first few games.
