Kris Bryant returned to empty dugout after first career home run (Video)
Cubs fans have been waiting for this moment for a long time. Kris Bryant hit his first major league home run on Saturday against the Brewers.
There will surely be many to follow for the Cubs’ young star, but the initial home run is always a special moment for any big league player. It also often results in the “silent treatment” when the player returns to the dugout. Teammates act as if nothing happened with no congratulatory high fives, handshakes, or pats on the helmet taking place, for a few seconds atleast. Then, everyone celebrates as is customary.
When Bryant returned to the dugout after his first home run, no one gave him the silent treatment, because no one was there. The dugout was empty.
Now that’s taking it to the next level.
