Cubs Catcher Willson Contreras Celebrates All-Star Appearance With Family in Tearful Video

Contreras hit a home run in Tuesday's All-Star Game

Tuesday was a big day for Chicago Cubs catcher Willson Contreras, and after he hit a home run in the MLB All-Star Game, a video captured his emotional embrace with his family. 

Contreras, who started in the game for the first time in his career, took the first pitch he saw over the left field wall to get the National League on the board, and his family was elated over the historic accomplishment. 

The Cubs posted a video to their Twitter feed of the awesome moment: 

Contreras and the Cubs will return to Wrigley Field on Thursday night to take on the St. Louis Cardinals. First pitch is scheduled for 6:05 p.m.
