CHICAGO — Chicago Cubs catcher Willson Contreras made time for a group of aspiring big leaguers at a Lids store in Chicago on Monday. Known for his charitable work and fan-friendly nature, Contreras was delighted to give advice to the Little Leaguers at the hat retailer, which hooked the kids up with customized Cubs hats featuring Contreras' signature.

Several of the boys in attendance listed Contreras as their favorite Cub, and they were thrilled to have the chance to glean some advice from the North Siders' All-Star backstop. Encouraging the young men to follow their dreams, Contreras shared his personal story of never giving up on his major-league dream and said when speaking to the camera that he aims to set a positive example for all young baseball players.
