Starlin Castro mimics Kris Bryant on throw to first
The Chicago Cubs' new disco-infused fun-loving spirit appears to be extending beyond the clubhouse and onto the field.
In the sixth inning of the Cubs game against the Cardinals on Wednesday night, third baseman Kris Bryant moved in front of shortstop Starlin Castro to field a ground ball to the left side, and as Bryant fired to first, Castro stood behind him, mimicking his throwing motion.
First baseman Anthony Rizzo, tasked with figuring out where the ball was coming from and catching (which he did, to record the out) didn't look overly amused, but he did crack a smile.
After the game, Bryant told the Chicago Tribune that he hadn't know about Castro's stunt until after the game.
"We're having fun out there," he said, according to the Tribune. "At the end of the day we're here to have fun and win as many games as possible."
