Video Description: Getting to hang at Wrigley Field and play baseball with an All-Star major leaguer? Are you kidding?! Willson Contreras is *the* nicest guy, and it was great to spend time with him. After playing catch to get loose, he gave me some defensive tips behind the plate, and then we took batting practice. I came close to hitting a few balls out; he launched several moonshots deep into the bleachers . . . of course. He's a beast, and it was fun to talk baseball with him and experience his athleticism up close.
