Cubs rookie prospect Willson Contreras made his long-awaited major league debut on Friday afternoon against the Pittsburgh Pirates in a 6-0 Cubs win.

The rookie catcher politely shook hands with the home plate umpire Gary Cederstrom as he entered the game for the first time in the top of the ninth inning. Pirates superstar Andrew McCutchen showed great sportsmanship by giving him a pat on his back understanding that this was Contreras' first moments in an official big-league game.
