Cubs’ Hoerner meets with fans in New Buffalo
NEW BUFFALO, Mich. (WNDU) - A major leaguer who had a short stint with the South Bend Cubs made a return to Michiana on Saturday.
Chicago Cubs second baseman and leadoff hitter Nico Hoerner met with fans at Fathers N Sons Sports Memorabilia to sign autographs and take pictures.
“We’re really excited to have him,” says Rex Gotcher, owner of Fathers N Sons Sports Memorabilia. “It’s our first signing of a current player, and the turnout has been fantastic. Small town New Buffalo and just look at the turnout — it’s amazing. This is where the hobby lives and breathes every single day.”
Hoerner is currently hitting .315 this season. He had two hits in Chicago’s 4-2 win on Saturday over the Miami Marlins.
