Javier Baez hits a game-winning homer in his major league debut

David Price wasn’t the only one who made a big splash with his new team. Javier Baez — who wasn’t just making his Cubs debut but his major league debut — did too. He did so by¬†smacking a homer in the 12th inning of last night’s game against the Rockies to give Chicago a 6-5 lead, which proved to be the final score. Watch:

It wasn’t the best day Baez will ever have in the majors — he struck out three of the first five times he came to the plate and grounded out and lined out the other two times in last night’s game — but his debut will certainly be a memorable one for him and for Cubs fans.
