WATCH: Cody Bellinger reacts to re-signing with Cubs

by - Senior Editor -

Chicago Cubs standout outfielder Cody Bellinger held his press conference Wednesday after re-signing with the ballclub on a three-year deal worth $80 million.

Bellinger missed the game of baseball while he was waiting.

“I was craving baseball. I was fiending for it,” he said. “Doing what I could in the offseason, enjoying all my family time, doing everything I could physically and mentally to stay ready for when the time came. It feels really good.”

Bellinger always wanted to be back in the Windy City.

“I didn’t hide the fact internally that I did want to come back here,” he said. “I just love Wrigley Field. I love the fans. Me and my family enjoy Chicago.”

Bellinger hit .307 with 26 homers and 97 RBIs last season.
