Starlin Castro might be in pinstripes now, but that doesn’t mean the Wrigley Faithful have forgotten about him. In the Cubs home opener Monday, first baseman Anthony Rizzo paid homage to his former teammate by choosing Ando En La Versace as his walk up song. This, or course, was the song used by Castro and the fans absolutely loved it. Rizzo didn’t tell anyone he was doing it so his teammates were just as surprised as the fans.
“He was part of this organization for a long time,” Rizzo said. “He taught me a lot on how to be a big-leaguer. Him getting traded was tough for a lot of us. Just to be able to get the crowd excited was pretty cool.”
He planned to use it just once, but since the entire North Side clapped along and cheered he might keep it going.
“I might have to do a Twitter poll or something,” he said.
It’s moments like these that remind us that baseball truly is one big family. And as some icing on the cake, the Cubs went on to win 5-3. We see you Cubbies, we see you.
