Current Cubs and Dexter Fowler share how they found out they were being called up to majors

1 year agoStaff Report

Miguel Amaya was out buying groceries in Huntsville, Ala. when he got a call from Michael Ryan, the Tennessee Smokies manager. He went to his hotel room and told him he was getting the call.

The one every player dreams of — the call to the major leagues.

“Immediately I jumped to him, I hugged him and immediately called my parents,” Amaya will never forget the moment — and neither will any other current Cub — it’s the call of a lifetime.

During Cubs Pregame Live! Taylor McGregor caught up with a few current Cubs players to find out how they got the news. Then, Dexter Fowler shared his call-up story with Cole Wright and the surreal way he found out.

Check out the video above to see the stories.
