Unreal! When Christopher Morel was called up this afternoon, fans weren’t even sure if they would see the 22-year-old make his debut. That said, fans were rewarded with an incredible moment on Tuesday night. Morel entered in a pinch hitting role late in Tuesday’s 7-0 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates. After working the count full, Morel hit a ball into orbit and created an incredible memory in his major league debut.

What a moment for the 22-year-old! Morel absolutely smoked the sixth pitch he saw over the left field bleachers. Talk about an epic moment in a Cubs season that feels like it may be starting to turn around. Although Morel is ranked No. 21 in the system, he still provides a glimmer of hope for what is coming on the farm. This moment will be considered a highlight at the end of the 2022 season no matter what level of success the Cubs have.
