Crystal Lake Family Watches Son Homer At Wrigley
Don't worry, the Cubs still won so this is pretty cool.
Nick Martini graduated from Prairie Ridge High School in Crystal Lake more than a decade ago. He finally made it back to Illinois to play professional baseball and his family will never forget it.
Martini's 2-run homer in the top of the eighth cut the Cubs lead in half but the North Siders held on to win the game by a margin of one.
It was obviously a big deal for his family, who were watching Nick from the bleachers. Not sure exactly who was who in the video above but I'm pretty sure I saw some tears in there.
This is Martini's second stint with the A's. He played in a handful of games last year and was recently called up to the MLB club earlier this season.
Good luck to the Crystal Lake native, just pump your brakes a little when at Wrigley.
