MLB Draft Cameras Capture Theo Epstein’s Son Going Wild as His Dad Selects the 16th Pick for the Chicago Cubs’
Just like the NFL and the WNBA, the MLB also hosted their draft from inside their respective homes. And just as they are supposed to, the kids stole the show.
While we didn’t have any pets making selections, ahem…Bill Belichick, President for the Chicago Cubs Theo Epstein‘s son did his job very well. Epstein and his wife, Marie, share two sons, Jack and Andrew.
It’s unclear if it was Jack or Andrew who decided to do sprints during his big moment on national television but we’re glad he did. And his mom and dad got a kick out of it too.
As the little boy rocked some pretty amazing hair, his mom and dad smiled and laughed at him as he ran from the table Epstein was sitting at to the couch that was behind him and back. And the announcers took notice too.
“And you saw Theo Epstein there. His little boy running around and a little piano in the background.”
Epstein also made a statement with his new computer cover. As his MacBook sat front and center on their dining room table, the cover on the computer read, “Black Lives Matter. United for Change.”
In the first round, the Cubs selected a shortstop Ed Howard. Howard is just 18 years old and a Mount Carmel High School graduate, which is located in Chicago, Illinois. In an interview with the Chicago Sun-Times, he talked about not being picked up by the White Sox in the 11th pick.
“The White Sox, that’s their pick. They did what they felt was best. Do I agree with them? No. But I’m excited to be with the Cubs, man.”
And when asked how he will deal with the pressures of being the “hometown man,” Howard told the Sun-Times, “I wanted to be a hometown kid. I’m excited it’s with the Cubs. … I think it’s special. It’s unique, and I’m eager to take on that challenge.”
Such poise for a teenage superstar.
