On May 7, 2010 Starlin Castro, the first major leaguer to be born in the 1990’s, becomes the sixth Cub in franchise history to hit a home run in his first big league at bat, hitting a 3 run homerun off Homer Bailey in Chicago’s 14-7 win over Cincinnati at Great American Ball Park. He also becomes the first modern day player to compile six RBIs in his debut in the majors when he delivers a bases-loaded triple in addition to his second inning three-run blast to deep right field. At 20 years old he is the youngest shortstop in Chicago Cubs history.
